Hayden’s Detroit Heritage Packs Them In
The Kerrytown Concert House was filled to the rafters for Marion Hayden’s Detroit Legacy Ensemble on January 8. The audience was not disappointed: the music was original, swinging, and exuberant!
It was particularly gratifying to have a few unannounced guests: tenor sax and clarinet veteran Wendell Harrison and the ever creative and soulful Cassius Richmond on alto and flute. It was also a celebration of three great Detroit jazz composers: Kenn Cox, Donald Walden, and Roy Brooks.
Our thanks go out to Marion Hayden for keeping this music alive. The SEMJA/KCH series could not have started out better in the new year.
