We are delighted to launch Jazz Vespers 2018 on Sunday, January 21 by welcoming back All Saints parishioner and founding member of the YellowJackets — the awesome Russell Ferrante who returns with Russell Ferrante Trio, including Steve Schaeffer on drums and Michael Valerio on bass.
Russ’s first exposure to music came from his church, where his father was the choir director, a frequent vocal soloist, and leader of a vocal gospel quartet. He began piano lessons at 9 with the expectation that one day he would be the church pianist … but his musical interests took him elsewhere.
Russ has performed with Jimmy Witherspoon, Jim Pepper, Joe Farrell, Joni Mitchell, Bobby McFerrin, Robben Ford, Al Jarreau, Marilyn Scott, Ernie Watts, Sadao Watanabe, GRP, Big Band, Lee Ritenour, Tom Scott, Take 6, Michael Franks, Eric Marienthal,and Brenda Russell. Russ currently teaches in the Jazz Studies department at USC.
Sunday, January 21 at 5:00 p.m. on the Chancel. Meditation by Mike Kinman. Childcare provided. No reservations required. If you would like to use the chancel elevator for accessibility, please arrive five minutes early. Validated parking is available at Plaza las Fuentes.
