Snug Harbor presents
DR. MICHAEL WHITE QUINTET with CHRIS THOMAS KING
Wednesday October 4th, 2023 9:30pm (Doors: 9:00pm)
Dr. Michael White is a widely regarded clarinetist, bandleader, composer, historian and educator that plays classic New Orleans jazz in the George Lewis style, and has served as guest director for several Jazz at Lincoln Center concerts. His musical philosophy; “I try to teach to my students that one of the values of listening to jazz, especially New Orleans  jazz, is not just for the danceable nature and  the great music that it is, but also for the lessons it teaches that can be used today; that you have to improvise.” 

The prodigy of swamp blues legend Tabby Thomas, multi-instrumentalist Chris Thomas King spent his youth frequenting his father’s famed blues club in Baton Rouge. Yet, King developed his own sound and paved his way as the pioneer of the blues-rap genre in the 1990s, winning both Grammy and Country Music Awards. King has also earned his stripes as an actor in films like O Brother, Where Art Thou? and the Ray Charles biopic, Ray. Most recently, he published his debut book, The Blues: The Authentic Narrative of My Music & Culture.
