For more than 10 years she was employed as a Wayne County Deputy Sheriff in Detroit – today, she is a full-time performing/recording artist: Althea was born December 25th in Detroit and began her musical journey at the age four. She studied classical music at the Howard University in Washington D.C. and later gained further inspiration from Yusef Lateef, Ian Anderson, and her father, one of Motown’s original Funk Brothers, Dezie McCullers. She has since developed her own creative style and some regard the flutist as a “master of her craft”. In May 2013, she released her project “In The Flow”. Collaborating with Grammy award winning producer Michael Broening, she cowrote the title track, that became her biggest hit and reached number one ranking on both the Billboard Chart and the Smooth Jazz Chart. Althea made history by becoming the first flute player in the history of Billboard Chart to reach the number one spot. In April 2015, she and her rhythm section recorded her first live project on stage of the Detroit Public Library with a free concert: A compilation of some of her greatest hits and arguably her strongest work to date.

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 chart-topping saxophonist Vandell Andrew. Vandell’s music is diverse, balancing uptempo and R&B grooves which possess melodic melodies with elements of dance and pop. His budding music career was lifted when “Let’s Ride,” the leading single release from the independent 2014 EP “Turn It Up” reached #1 on the Billboard Charts. This success also earned Vandell a Soul Train Award nomination for “Best Contemporary Jazz Performance.”
