About

Saturday Night Jazz returns for a summer series on Woodmere Art Museum's lawn. Enjoy an evening outdoors surrounded by nature and monumental sculptures! Two performances per evening begin at 5 & 7pm.
The original King of Soul, Sam Cooke was called the “inventor” of soul music. He set the bar for Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Lou Rawls, Marvin Gaye, and many more. Composing and singing songs like “You Send Me,” “Having A Party,” and the classic “A Change Is Gonna Come” have earned him a permanent place in America’s musical legacy. Join The Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble with guest vocalist Roy Richardson as they put some of Sam’s music on the “cooker” and stir memories and hearts with his wonderful sound.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
