Olujimi Tafataona & In The Tradition
July 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for an evening of music with In The Tradition.
In The Tradition began in 1993 as a formidable hard-swinging bebop ensemble. In 1997, the band began to focus more on African rhythms and the music of the African diaspora yet remaining true to the bebop tradition, creating a unique mixture of jazz and African rhythms.
Every member of In The Tradition are seasoned performers; band members have performed individually with artists such as Dizzy Gillespie, Marcus Belgrave, B.B. King, Milt Jackson, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Martha Reeves and many others.
