Jazz Arts Presents The Ben Eisen Quartet







JazzArts Charlotte presents THE SET with Ben Eidson Quartet

Thursday May 27, 8:00pm EST

FREE on Facebook Live & YouTube Live

JazzArts Charlotte’s virtual live music series is excited to present the Ben Eisen Quartet, performing an energetic set of jazz standards plus Eidson originals.

Columbia native Ben Eidson has been considered a saxophone phenom since the young age of 18. He makes the saxophone wail, sing, celebrate and cry. The Ben Edison Quartet attempts to explore language and improvisation through a set of standards and originals that serves as a medium for each artist to express their own creative/artistic vision.

Featuring:

Ben Eidson, alto saxophone

Brendan Bull, drums

Amos Hoffman, guitar

Sam Edwards, bass

Tune in to Keep Jazz A-Live-Streaming to hear local jazz musicians and their lively sets live, straight to your living room via Facebook and YouTube Live.
