The First Installment of our baller new series, THE SHAPE OF JAZZ TO COME in THREE KEYS at the ACE HOTEL.
A monthly series dedicated to the presentation of jazz as it was intended -- a reflexive and ever evolving art form. New Compositions. Contemporary Ideas. Excellent and Exciting Musicianship. Adventure, Surprise and Romance.
For the first edition of The Shape of Jazz to Come, we are amped to feature bassist Amina Scott and her quintet with special guest vocalist Amber Matthews.
Amina Scott is on the rise. Her calculated, bass heavy compositions offer a hint to her linage as an Oakland native, (i.e.Thundercat) and a nerdy passion for hip-hop, but make no mistakes, this woman is a full-on jazzer. A recent Loyola grad, Scott is in demand about town on both electric and upright bass. She has shared the stage with Nicholas Payton, Joe Dyson, Christian Scott, Kermit Ruffins, among others. Her quintet features Stephen Gladney on Tenor Sax, Cyrus Nabipoor on Trumpet, Oscar Rossignoli on keys, Gerald Watkins on drums and guest vocalist Amber Matthews; sure to be a classy night of new jazz in Three Keys.
Amina Scott -- Bass / Compositions
Amber Matthews -- Vocals
Stephen Gladney -- Tenor Sax
Cyrus Nabipoor -- Trumpet
Oscar Rossignoli -- Keys
Gerald Watkins -- Drums
Expect a mix of Scott's own compositions, originals by her band members, and her interpretive arrangements of other tunes.

7:30 DOORS// 8PM SHOW
SANCTUARY CULTURAL ARTS CENTER
2525 BURGUNDY STREET// MARGINY
On Tuesday, December 6th a cadre of prolific New Orleans songwriters come together to honor the legacy of the late Leonard Cohen organized by accordionist/composer David Symons. 2016 has seen the passing of an inordinately high number of extraordinary artists, with Cohen atop a list that also includes Prince and David Bowie. The familiar feeling of losing a hero or mentor, coupled with the maelstrom of Trump’s America and the outrageous actions taken against the Standing Rock Sioux has shocked so many of us into a combination of disbelief, confusion, and action.
We are New Orleans and our action is our song.
All the proceeds from the evening will directly support the Water Protectors protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Tickets will be available at the door on a first come first served basis and are sliding scale$10 – 20.
This evening is produced in partnership with Sanctuary Cultural Arts Center.
