After Charlie Parker’s brilliant cultivation of bebop, a number of new stylistic directions emerged in the 1960s jazz landscape, and of those nothing grooved harder than Soul Jazz: a combination of swing, bebop, and the Rhythm and Blues and Soul Music that had taken the pop charts by storm. Artists like Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin dominated the airwaves just as Cannonball Adderley and Horace Silver infused jazz fans’ ears with powerful music. For this year’s holiday concert, KCJO will fill Helzberg Hall with sounds celebrating and paying homage to this great movement in the music.
