    Resonant Motion, Inc. presents the third event of 'Spanning Generations” as part of the 2016 Jazz Up Close series. For this event alto saxophonist and composer Godwin leads a quartet also featuring bassist Henry Lugo, drummer Allan Mednard, and pianist/series curator Noah Baerman. 

    Harlem-born Godwin Louis was raised in Bridgeport, CT and Port-au-Prince, Haiti, a eventually graduating from Berklee College of Music and subsequently the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute for Jazz Performance. Coming to wider attention as a finalist in the 2014 Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition, Godwin has performed with a wide variety of artists including Terri Lyne Carrington, Ralph Peterson Jr., Cindy Blackman, Delfeayo Marsalis, Phillip Bailey, Gloria Estefan, and Billy Preston. Godwin has received the Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Grant, and the Jazz Gallery's 'New Works Commission' and has recently appeared on recordings by Dr. Michael White and Herlin Riley. As an educator, humanitarian and ambassador, Godwin has traveled from Ghana to China to help promote cross-cultural understanding and introduce thousands to America’s indigenous art form, through public concerts, master classes, and jam sessions. 

    This event is funded by the Middletown Commission on the Arts and The Friends of the Russell Library.
