Motown Meets Jazz with Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble at African American Museum
In the spirit of our newest exhibit, Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection presented by PNC Arts Alive, we welcome Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble and vocalists Roy Richardson and Patricia Scott for an afternoon trip down a musical memory lane. Blending the signature hooks of songs like “Heat Wave,” “My Girl,” “Stop in the Name of Love” and “Ooh, Baby, Baby,” and the solos and improvisation of jazz, this is a trip you definitely want to take!
Light refreshments will be available for sale.
Led by upright bass player Warren Oree, the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble includes Umar Raheem (soprano and tenor saxophone), Greg “Ju-Ju” Jones (drums), Doug “Pablow” Edwards (congas and percussion), and Frank Butrey (guitar).
