In what has become an annual tradition, the 2015 Hot Times Kate Schulte Tribute is a local tour bringing jazz legends to great venues around the city. Along with a return visit from the Tribute’s Artist-in-Residence Emeritus, internationally renowned educator and tenor saxophonist Kidd Jordan, the three-show series will also feature baritone saxophonist Hamett Bluiett in a very rare stop in Columbus. Regarded as the finest baritone sax player of his generation, Bluiett, who will turn 75 later this month, has a deep legacy of live and recorded jazz under his own name and with groups like the World Saxophone Quartet. Along with the Jazz Poetry Ensemble (Michael Vander Does on poetry and trombone, Roger Hines on bass, Roger Myers on drums, and Brett Burleson on guitar), the Tribute will play three shows next week: A benefit for the Kate Schulte Foundation at Natalie’s at 9pm on Wednesday, September 9th (ticket info here), a loose and intimate show at Dick’s Den at 9pm on Thursday, September 10th, and a final free concert at the Hot Times Festival, 240 Parsons Avenue, at 3:45pm on Sunday, September 13th. Their performance on the festival’s Main Street Stage is immediately following the Gene Walker Tribute at 2pm, providing a rousing double dose of jazz history and live performance. Keep reading for more details from the Kate Schulte Foundation and video of Jordan and Bluiett in action: Read More →
