The Bach Dancing and Dynamite Society is hosting two performances from the Bay Area Jazz and Blues Artists (BAJABA) organization.
The group is “spearheaded by radio-television producer Afrikahn Jahmal Dayvs (with) the purpose …to broaden recognition and aesthetic appreciation of music genres known as jazz-blues by presenting and recording live showcases of artists performing the music and playing the recordings back on the radio.”
The concerts showcase “traditional mainstream jazz in post-bop styles reminiscent of music performed by Blue Note artists in the 1960s” and are sponsored by Jazzline Institute, LifeForceJazz Records and the Bach Dancing & Dynamite Society. They also will be broadcast on KKUP and KPFA.
First up is a July 27 date featuring the Dawan Muhammad Quintet with Muhammad (saxophone), Spencer Allen (piano), Jeff Chambers (bass), Terrell Otis (drums), Dayvs (percussion) and Joice Walton (vocals). That is followed August 3 with a performance featuring Ron E. Beck (vocals), Don E. Beck (organ), Tammi Brown (vocals), Jerry Perez (guitar) and Noel Cap Kaecuper (saxophone).
