This Friday, February 8, multi-instrumentalist Julius Rodriguez returns to The Jazz Gallery for two sets. Rodriguez has had a busy past few months. In December, he was featured at the Gallery alongside bassist Eric Revis for our Mentoring Series, followed by performances at the Winter Jazz Festival in early January. Rodriguez also appears on drummer Kassa Overall’s new album, Go Get Ice Cream and Listen to Jazz, which has received positive notice from WBGO and the New York Times.
Last weekend, Rodriguez and his working group headed up to the Jazz Forum in Tarrytown, NY, meaning they’ll be on the top of their game this weekend at the Gallery. Before coming out to the show, check out this Australian Broadcasting radio interview with Rodriguez from last spring.
The Julius Rodriguez Quintet plays The Jazz Gallery on Friday, February 8, 2019. The group features Mr. Rodriguez on piano, Giveton Gelin on trumpet, Morgan Guerin on saxophone, Philip Norris on bass, and Brian Richburg Jr. on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $20 general admission ($10 for members), $30 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
