The theme of the service is: “Experience the Presence of God through the sound of Jazz” featuring vocalists Debbie Carter and Naomi Johnson, accompanied by The JazzSoetry Trio, with Aziza on Piano; Dion Parson, Drums; and, Stanley Banks, Bass.
According to Reverend Norm Freeman, the Jazz Vespers Service is itself a synthesis of several traditions, each finding a unifying voice through the unique musical heritage that we called jazz.
“This is an outstanding opportunity for everyone from our New York City community to worship in a relaxed setting and find God in the spacious freedom of jazz music. It is a musical tradition that gives us a voice to the hopes, dreams, frustrations and pain that expresses the human experience. Simply put, Jazz is the musical incense that collects and carries the prayers of a people.” stated Reverend Anthony L. Trufant, Senior Pastor, Emmanuel Baptist Church.
