What do you get when you combine the talents of Grammy-nominated jazz trumpeter Russell Gunn and Grammy-winning vocalist Dionne Farris? Well, two nights of great music — going down this Friday (Oct.12) and Saturday (Oct. 13) at Churchill Grounds.
These Atlanta-based music heavyweights are taking the stage (for two shows each night) — along with the members of Gunn’s Quartet (Kevin Smith on bass, Louis Heriveaux on piano, Henry Conerway III on drums) — to serve up, says Gunn, “the Dionne Farris songbook with arrangements by yours truly.”
That said, keep your ears peeled for what I’m sure will be some unexpected and surprising takes on Farris classics like “Hopeless,” “I Know” ... and hopefully newer cuts such as “Hidden Charm,” “Every Day” and more.
This is a must-attend musical experience for jazz and soul lovers. So, go.
$20. Friday: 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Saturday: 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. Churchill Grounds, 660 Peachtree St. www.churchillgrounds.com.
