Jazz Performance at Temple Tonight
The Heart of Carolina Jazz Society presents special guest artist trumpeter and composer Tom Browne, performing with the Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra, directed by Gregg Gelb Friday, Jan. 14, at 8 p.m., at Temple Theatre, in Sanford.
Also performing will be vocalist Alexander Brower. Brower will sing songs from his new CD as well as some Lou Rawls numbers.
Browne began to carve a path for his musical future early on, studying via scholarship under Murray Karpilovsky (principal trumpeter with the NBC Orchestra). A student at the co-joined High School of Music and Art/Performing Arts in New York, Browne became a regular on the New York jazz scene and had the fortune of learning firsthand from masters like Jimmy Nottingham, Richard Williams, Woody Shaw and Freddie Hubbard.
Browne soon played his first pro level performances as sideman to jazz greats Weldon Irvine and Sonny Fortune, for which he earned domestic and international recognition.
Concert tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students and children (general admission)
