JAZZ AT THE SANDBAR Presents: Reedist Rex Gregory!
Time & Location
About The Event
Jazz at the Sandbar has been a popular performance series at the University of New Orleans since 1990. Jazz at the Sandbar is designed to provide UNO Jazz Studies students an opportunity to get real-life experience performing with respected professional musicians in front of a live audience. The series is presented on Wednesday nights during the fall and spring semesters and features a different respected jazz artist each week. It provides a medium in which students exercise their improvisational skills and gives them the rare opportunity to work with jazz masters. “Jazz at the Sandbar” was established by Ellis Marsalis, the first Chairman of the Jazz Studies Program at UNO. Downbeat Magazine calls "One of the best things going in America."
A Seattle-based saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist, Rex Gregory has performed and/or recorded with a diverse array of luminaries such as Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, and Lady Gaga, Rickie Lee Jones, Jason Marsalis, Dr. John, Derek Smith aka Pretty Lights, Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Stanton Moore, Herlin Riley, and many others.
