Tenth World featuring Kevin Jones and Kelvin Sholar
August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
A summertime jazz concert series is headed to Detroit’s Beacon Park! Jazz at DTE’s Beacon Park is sponsored by the DTE Beacon Park Foundation, curated by the Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation.
The August 16th event will feature Tenth World featuring Kevin Jones and Kelvin Sholar. Percussionist Kevin Jones has worked extensively with icons of the music industry. From his work in the eighties with Whitney Houston and The Isley Brothers to more recent work with Reggie Workman, Archie Shepp, Charles McPherson, Talib Kibwe and Winard Harper, Kevin has been able to traverse styles seamlessly. Kevin formed Tenth World with Detroit natives, Pianist Kelvin Sholar and Bassist Damon Warmack which combines the harmonic and melodic qualities of Jazz with the deep grooves of Africa and the Americas.
The entire Jazz at DTE’s Beacon Park series is free to all and will feature local and national jazz artists with a Detroit Jazz Festival Foundation history. This will be a rich musical experience that shouldn’t be missed!
