A Musical Celebration
(June 25, 1999)
JVC Jazz Festival, Beacon Theater, New York City
Don Alias, Harry Connick Jr., Branford Marsalis, STING, Jeff Watts, and others.
Composer/musician Raymond Jones and friends are preparing a memorial concert to honor pianist/musician Kenny Kirkland. The show will be held Monday evening, December 21st, at Hollywood's premier jazz venue, Catalina Bar and Grill. All proceeds from the non-profit event will go directly to the Kirkland family. Pianists alone who have verbally agreed to participate thus far include George Duke, Herbie Hancock and (if available) Patrice Rushen. The program will be structured around small ensemble and solo performances of material associated with Kirkland and his illustrious affiliations with musicians in the jazz, R&B, classical and rock idioms. Plus, throughout the evening, anecdotes and tributes will be shared (recorded or spoken) from many people who worked with or knew Kirkland. It promises to be an evening of immense musical and memorial proportions.
