McMurray

Welcome to Season III of the Gallery Suite Jazz Series.

Since its inception in 2012, the Gallery Suite Jazz Series has been host to twenty two consecutive sold out showcases featuring a celebrated list of regional, national and international artists. Now in its third season, the series continues its tradition of offering some of the best entertainment in downtown Lansing performed by notable artists in various styles of the jazz idiom.

The Gallery Suite Jazz Series is hosted by International recording artist and saxophonist Phil Denny and takes place in downtown Lansing’s most unique and intimate artist-owned studio spaces. This hip, urban, raw venue with open wood ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed brick walls creates the ideal backdrop for you and your guests to experience a night of lively entertainment with an emphasis on diversion though pure musical artistry. With a limited seating capacity, those present will feel as though the music is being performed just for them.

This month’s featured artist is Detroit famed saxophonist and multi-instrumentaslist Dave McMurray. McMurray has his own style, which is inimitable. His life and career spans much of the evolution of contemporary jazz (even taking part in shaping said evolution), and he excels in all its many flavors. His solo sound is hard-edged and funky. McMurray has collaborated with nearly every industry superstar, including but not limited to Gladys Knight, Bob Dylan, Iggy Pop, Bonnie Raitt, Bootsy Collins, Bob James, and most recently Kid Rock (with whom he is currently touring) and Motown artist KEM, for whom he serves as musical director.
