Palmer Woods Music in Homes presents the Wendell Harrison World Music Quintet featuring Pathe Jassi. Held in a magnificent Palmer Woods residence, the concert is Saturday, March 25, beginning at 8 p.m.

Jazz master saxophonist/clarinetist Wendell Harrison, African bassist/vocalist Pathe Jassi, pianist/2016 Kresge Arts Fellow Pamela Wise, guitarist Jacob Schwandt and drummer Louis Jones III will explore jazz and its African rhythms, as they perform original compositions, as well as music from Senegal, the Caribbean, and New Orleans. The concert will contrast the different approaches to expression of Black life, and also define and illuminate rhythms from the three music idioms—Blues, Reggae, and Samba—which tell stories of African linkage and various cultures of the African diaspora.

The concert includes a reception with refreshments. Locations of the private home will be released to ticket holders. For reservations, click here.
