Thanks again for these great pictures. The world Stage , Founded by Drummer Billy Higgins and Poet Laureate Kamaau Daood over 25 years ago. The new World Stage is off to a great start in its new facilities . Over the last 4 months they have procured a plethora of legendary jazz artists. This past weekend was no different as multi-instrumentalist and composer, Bennie Maupin brought in his aggregation of players.
In addition to his group of fine musicians, He also showcased Shana Tucker, a new face and voice thats been making a lots of noise on the east coast with superior skills on cello, guitar and vocals.
