Giacomo Gates & Trio at the Kennedy Center

Oct 23, 2009 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

Heavily steeped in the traditions of the original vocal improvisers--from Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald through their modern counterparts Betty Carter and Leon Thomas--"Giacomo Gates is a singer who combines the mellow conversational elegance of a crooner with the hipster outlook of a bebop scat and vocalese singer" (Newark Star-Ledger). Gates's sheer joy, exuberance, wit, and unlimited creativity make him one of the most compelling artists in jazz today.

Giacomo Gates will give two performances on the evening of Oct. 23, 2009 at 7:30 and 9:30. Tickets and complete concert information are available on the Kennedy Center website.
