The Intergenerational Jazz Power Jam is back in March with Scenes from Black Wall Street featuring Nikara Warren, vibes and compositions and Craig Hill, saxophone with Eli “Dr. E” Yamin and Jazz Power. Black Wall Street is Nikara Warren’s debut album, in which she honors her Black ancestries’ splendor with a joyous celebration of cultures, genres, identities, and resilience. Nikara will be joined by jazz double bassist Lonnie Plaxico, and drummer David F. Gibson, for a marvelous illustration of black wealth and possibilities. RSVP at no cost now at jazzpower.org/powerjam
