Da Camera presents Blue Note Records 80th Birthday Celebration
Celebrate the legendary jazz record label with performances by three outstanding artists. Houston native pianist James Francies released his Blue Note debut, Flight, in 2018, and is enjoying a meteoric rise in the jazz world and beyond. Kandace Springs counts Billie Holiday, Roberta Flack and Norah Jones as her heroes, but as evidenced by her sparkling recordings, mimics none of them. Detroit saxophonist James Carter leads an intergenerational organ trio featuring rising B3 star Gerard Gibbs and the propulsive drum support of Alex White.
