Mr Musichead Gallery, in partnership with Los Angeles Jazz Radio Broadcaster and Producer LeRoy Downs and All Music Television Founder/CEO Frederick Smith, Jr. presents a weekly lineup of internationally recognized Jazz artists.
Jazz lovers will enjoy an early evening wine and beer tasting on the back patio, as well as a rotating display of jazz art and photography with special guest performers.
Purple Gums is a brass ensemble (tenor sax, cornet and tuba) whose role is to carry on the tradition of making music in the moment. Charts don’t exist. Rehearsals have never occurred. Ideas are generated and developed on the bandstand. Music making for this group is a high risk venture. The music created from the pooled experience of the band’s members is a tasty gumbo of jazz, free improv, ragtime and classical. This leads to flights of whimsy and excursions into the unexpected. What you see is not always what you get. While you may think for a moment that you are listening to a traditional New Orleans brass band, what you are caressed with may be something all together different – as in the band’s name and the title of their first CD, Purple Gums.
- William Roper – tuba
- Bobby Bradford – trumpet, cornet
- Francis Wong – saxophone
