Legendary Jazz Trumpeter Tom Browne to perform in Houston
Teams up with St. James’ Jazz Ensemble, local young musicians in concert
St. James’ Episcopal Church is gearing up for its annual “Harvest Jazz Concert” as part of its Jazz Concert Series. This year’s concert, benefiting worship, spiritual growth and outreach ministries, will be held at the church on November 19, 2011 7-9 p.m., featuring legendary jazz trumpeter, Tom Browne and the St. James’ Jazz Ensemble.
Established in 1937, St. James’ Episcopal Church has been at the core of the Houston community. Each year, the Jazz Ensemble teams up with a musical guest to bring to the community an evening of music designed to promote the connection between spirituality, creativity, jazz, and our faith in God.
In 2010, the Ensemble teamed up with Nothing But Soul and the Conrad Johnson Big Blue Band. The musicians are dynamic entertainers who mix musical storytelling with vibrant performance. The concerts are active and dramatic enough to engage younger audiences, cool enough to interest young adults and the content compelling enough for adult audiences.
In addition to the Jazz Ensemble, Tom will perform with a select group of up-and-coming young musicians in the Houston area.
“We are so excited to have Tom Browne with us this year,” says Rev. Victor Thomas, rector, St. James’ Episcopal Church. “It’
Consider the songs in our hearts that inspire us toward uplifted continence; melodies that ring out in a manner that is soulful ... even funky—“Funkin For Jamaica” and “Thighs High”! Now think of an artist; an artist who George Benson describes as “joy filled in expressiveness”
