The Jazz Thieves

Wednesday, August 7 · view days & times
Price: Free
Venue: BB&T Jazz Cabaret Stage

The Jazz Thieves revitalize jazz by reconnecting it to its roots through evocative lyrics, soulful improvisation and wide-ranging originals. Their sound is inspired by Duke Ellington's melodicism, Tom Waits's grit, Bill Withers's soulful lyricism, and Kamasi Washington's modern edge, uniting it all with a jazz imagination. The Jazz Thieves's sound has been forged in the grit and hustle of New York City's jazz and independent music scenes, absorbing their aesthetic and spirit from venues which feature modern pop, old-school soul, eclectic rock and straight ahead jazz. They are led by the bassist/composer/lyricist John Gray, and feature Matt Robbins on vocals and keyboard, Ayumi Ishito on saxophone, and Tim Ford on drums.
