Terrific Band led by Atlanta Saxophonist Kenyon Carter To Play in Columbus

This Sunday (8/12) in Columbus from 6-9 EDT, the Columbus Jazz Society will hold its monthly concert and jam session. Headlining will be Atlanta saxophonist Kenyon Carter who is often heard in Auburn at Piccolo and gigs around town. He will have with him a fantastic bass player named Tim Aucoin who is an award winning high-school orchestra teacher in Atlanta. I heard Tim play a good bit in New Orleans. He was known then for his deeply funky electric bass playing and is a phenomenal acoustic player as well. On piano, Tyrone Jackson will join Kenyon who has a tremendous reputation in the region as one of the very best players. I'm writing this on the fly, and don't have at my fingertips who the drummer will be, but this will be a very, very good band. The concert will not be at its regular venue. It will play at St. Thomas Episcopal Church due to road construction around the Liberty Theatre. Click the CJS link above for the address and more about the jam session and food and drink available.

UPDATE: Personnel has changed a bit since I last checked with Kenyon. Here are the players:

Coleman Woodson, III - keys
Tim Aucoin - Bass
John David - drums

There are other things coming up, but this is all I have time for at the moment. Kenyon's website is kenyoncarter.com.
