Healdsburg Jazz is proud to present the powerful blues singer and band leader Terrie Odabi and her group for our special 2023 Concert and Celebration of Black History Month, Blues of Resistance. Terrie Odabi will cover a wide range of music from the Civil Rights Movement including a feature on the songs recorded by the Staple Singers. With Simon Russell (keys), Anthony Paule (guitar), Kirk Crumpler (bass), and Pierre Parker (drums). Prior to the concert, Healdsburg Jazz’s Artistic Director Marcus Shelby will lead the presentation “Soul of the Movement: Meditations on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”. The foundation of Healdsburg Jazz is rooted in the tradition of black music, elegant swing, storytelling, and the power of the blues. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. understood how music could quickly inform, inspire, and empower the masses—especially with the blues, which has flexibility and a multiplicity of expressive tools including Irony, ethos, double entendres, tension, release, and of course improvisation.
