Lakecia Benjamin

It is easy to hear why saxophonist and composer Lakecia Benjamin was named a 2020 Rising Star by the Downbeat Magazine Critics’ Poll. A collaborator with artists as diverse as Alicia Keys, Gregory Porter, Anita Baker, and Clark Terry, Benjamin has proven versatility and excellence in multiple fields, but it is her third album as bandleader, Pursuance: The Coltranes, that best spotlights her virtuosity. Pursuance is a sax-driven set of standards by both Alice and John Coltrane, featuring Benjamin and her band joined by a stellar multi-generational lineup of guest artists including Ron Carter, Reggie Workman, Gary Bartz, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Georgia Anne Muldrow. Benjamin breathes new life into the Coltranes' legacy, finding and reflecting the nuance and brilliance of these jazz titans.

This event is approximately 90 minutes.
