Howard Wiley Quartet At 57th Street Gallery Aug. 12th

Howard Wiley’s remarkably passionate sound moves from bold and brash to soft and sensuous yet remains rooted in soul, while  incorporating classic, traditional and contemporary esthetics to form his own original voice. Having recorded and performed with the likes of Clarence Gatemouth Brown, Dayna Stephens, Lavay Smith, and Norman Brown as well as receiving numerous awards and accolades from the Thelonious Monk Institute, including MVP honors for the Grammy All-American Jazz Band and the Berklee College of Music Scholarship Award, Howard reflects the gospels and spirituals of the Black church, the swing of Lester Young and Colman Hawkins and the sonic revolutions of Greg Osby and the M-Base collective.  At the age of 15, Wiley released his first c.d. as a leader, The Buisnessman, signaling the arrival of the newest diamond in the rough.  Wiley has since released Twenty First Century Negro, the highly acclaimed cd The Angola Project, and his latest recording Twelve Gates To The City.

Join Howard Wiley and his quartet Friday August 12th at Oakland’s newest venue for quality Jazz and contemporary art, The 57th Street Gallery at 5701 Telegraph Avenue. Two sets, beginning at 8pm   $15 Admission
