Lakecia Benjamin – JazzFest

June 26 @ 9:00 pm

Three-time GRAMMYnominated New York-based saxophonist, arranger, composer, and educator Lakecia Benjamin offers a unique meld of R&B, several strains of jazz, and funk. In addition to honing her chops early with Clark Terry, she is also a noted accompanist for vocalists — among them Gregory Porter and Theo Crocker.

Her warm, resonant tone — that has been compared to Johnny Griffin’s — lends itself to any form of music she chooses to play. This is one TD JazzFest 2024 performance that you won’t want to miss! Zaccai Curtis keyboardsElias Bailey bassEJ Strickland drums
