The Sammons Center celebrates its 30th anniversary with a very special concert at Moody Performance Hall. Sammons Jazz Artistic Director, pianist, composer, and Steinway Artist Arlington Jones kicks off the concert with his group, Arlington Jones & The Brethren, in a toe-tapping, finger-snapping, hand-clapping, head-bobbing experience. The Brethren features Brannen Temple on drums and Nick Clark on bass. Internationally-acclaimed jazz vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur leads her ensemble in a memorable second set that showcases the rich stylings of jazz. Discovered "officially" by sax virtuoso Stan Getz at the 1979 Monterey Jazz Festival, Schuur has since won two Grammy Awards and developed a worldwide following for her live and recorded performances. Performing with Schuur, fondly known as "Deedles," are Roger Hines on electric and acoustic bass, John Nastos on saxophone, and Kendall Kay on drums.
