Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra 2014-15 Guest Jazz Artist Series

8/14/14 – Jesse Junior, vocalist with the Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra
At Depot Park, Sanford 7pm   (free admission)  226 Carthage St. Sanford, NC (rain site is the First Presbyterian Church – 203 Hawkins Ave)

A Milwaukee native, NYC expatriate, and now self-described “Asheville Jazzvillian”, singer Jesse Earl Junior is steeped in the Original American Art Form.

“Of all the vocalists in WNC, Jesse Junior is my favorite. He’s nothing but class. Jesse’s vocal delivery and that rich bass/baritone voice are a wonderful reminder of the great singers from the 40’s & 50’s, such as Johnny Hartman, Billy Eckstine, Nat King Cole, Bob Eberly and Dick Haymes. He sings to his audience like he’s singing to you and only you.” Vocalist/drummer Russ Wilson

Heart of Carolina Jazz Orchestra 2014-15 Guest Jazz Artist Series (part two)

At the Temple Theatre, Sanford   8pm 120 Carthage St. Sanford, NC Tickets are all general admission $18 adults $10 students
Temple Theatre box office is 919-774-4155
Houston Person is a legend on the American jazz scene. “He’s one of the best . . He’s got bull chops!” Dizzy Gillespie
Dubbed “the natural heir to the Boss Tenor crown worn so long and so well by Gene Ammons” (Bob Porter), global performer Houston Person knows the music business inside out, from booking his own tours to producing his own albums. As eclectic as he is talented, Person has recorded everything from disco and gospel to pop and r&b, in addition to his trademark, soulful hard bop. After years as producer and house tenor for High Note Records and touring with the late Etta Jones, Person is now known as a master of popular songs played in a relaxed, highly accessible style reminiscent of the great Ben Webster.
