The Art of Jazz is an annual performance series presented in collaboration with the Gibbes Museum, Charleston Jazz and 5Church Charleston. Normally this series could be seen live each summer, but due to COVID-19, they will not be performing it live until next year.
You can enjoy past performances of Art of Jazz each month, as they will release a full Art of Jazz performance on Facebook and YouTube. This month the performance is the final show of the 2nd Annual Art of Jazz Series originally performed live on August 15, 2018.
It features The Absolutes saxophonist Kevin Patton and pianist Maxx Bradley. They debuted eight original compositions inspired by artwork on exhibit at the Gibbes Museum as part of a quartet including Fisher Wilson (bass) and Miller Boone (drums).
The Absolutes are former members of the College of Charleston Jazz Combo, which is under the direction of Robert Lewis.
