|Cruiser on keyboards, Professor Brown on soprano sax|
Friday, June 6th 2014 -We went back to the Grenada National Museum for their First Friday show. We got there at 6pm, a tad late for the 5:30 show. The room was dark and a man was lecturing. Hum? This isn't jazz. However there were instruments set up in the front of the small room. Had we already missed the jazz? Hum? We stood in the back listening and accessing the situation, not wanting to commit to seats just yet. Professor Leonard Brown from Northeastern University, Boston MA is here in Grenada for two weeks with a group of college kids on The Afro-Caribbean Music Research Project Grenada 2014. He was speaking about this program and the importance of Afro-Caribbean music for all black people. It was interesting so we took seats in the front row - committed ourselves BIG time.
|Most songs were instrumental only but this guy sang some on "Summertime"|
|Jazz with a hip hop singer|
|Poetry reading of an original piece|
|Young jazz singer when everyone else wants to be another Rihanna|
The Bulgaria keyboard player kicked off the final set by himself playing a two heavy duty classical pieces. OMG! Nether of us is up enough on classic music to tell you what the two pieces were but you would all recognized them if you heard them.
