PATHE JASSI ~ World Jazz Fusion
Tuesday, July 15, 6:00 p.m.
Senegal native Pathe Jassi is one of Detroit’s most highly respected musicians. His Motor City roots run deep, preceding his emigration to the United States. The late Detroit jazz saxophonist Sam Sanders took the young bassist under his wing, teaching him to read music and coached him on music theory. Whether playing jazz and funk as a sideman, or performing world music as leader of his own Pathe Jassi Trio, Jassi is placing an indelible stamp on the sound of Detroit.
Featuring... Sean Blackman on acoustic guitar. Sasha Kashperko on electric guitar, and Rick Beamon on drums!
