05 | Smooth Jazz with Marion Meadows & Marc Antoine

Two jazz greats — Marion Meadows & Marc Antoine — come together for one spectacularly smooth evening. Marion Meadows has played with some of the music industry’s greats, including The Temptations, Michael Bolton, and Eartha Kitt. As a solo artist he’s released a staggering 13 albums, including his latest, Soul Traveler, which combines the intoxicating sounds of smooth jazz, fusion, and contemporary jazz. Classically trained at the International School of Classical Guitar, Marc Antoine first became known to urban jazz audiences when he toured with Basia. Keeping his deep melodic flow and exotic melodic textures front and center, Antoine has established himself as a global star in contemporary jazz.  Don’t this one night only event with both artists sharing the stage for the evening!
