Don’t miss this rare performance of two generations of giants on the saxophone. Javon and Charles are like “family” with many common roots in Joplin, MO. Javon has a new recording coming out too, and you’ll hear new music from both saxophonists—from Straight Ahead Jazz, Bebop, and even some Gospel!
The Eternal Jazz Messenger Art Blakey (Javon is a former member of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers) often said that “my heart belongs to Keystone.” And that heart is still beating strong. — Todd Barkan, 2018 NEA Jazz Master
