Onyx Art will host this live music event to support the ongoing efforts of William “Doc” Jones’ International Day of Jazz Az Foundations’s Summer Camp. Onyx Art is a sponsor of the summer camp, which offers classes to the valley’s youth to expose and encourage them to follow a lifelong appreciation and practice of literature, performing arts and visual arts. Learn more about the foundation by visiting jazzy.com Featured artists are Doc Jones, and New Orleans Trumpeter, Mario Abney. Tickets will be available on March 4th.
"Trumpeter Mario Abney is one of the most soft-spoken musicians in New Orleans off the bandstand. On the gig, however, he's a fiery force on his horn, often shouting encouragement to his bandmates whether performing at Jazz Fest or in the Balcony Music Club. And if you think he's a one-trick pony, guess again: This talented multi-instrumentalist can often be seen on the bandstand behind the drums and at the keyboard. He's played with stars like Wynton Marsalis and Erykah Badu, but his own contemporary jazz group — the Mario Abney Quintet — is soaring sky high. "
