Jazz on the Green - Turner Park at Midtown Crossing
Omaha Performing Arts' Jazz on the Green returns to Turner Park at Midtown Crossing every Thursday from July 8-29. JOTG is free and open to the public. An award-winning singer, songwriter, and saxophonist, with a string of hit singles, millions of albums sold, and a 28-year recording career aside, Curtis Stigers has penned many notable songs, as well as written with the likes of Carole King and Barry Mann; all of which led to an Emmy nomination for co-writing and singing the theme song to the wildly successful TV series Sons Of Anarchy. Stigers’ brand-new album, GENTLEMAN, co-produced by Stigers and longtime collaborator, pianist/organist/composer Larry Goldings, features jazz arrangements of modern standards by Nick Lowe, Tom T. Hall, John Fullbright and David Poe, plus four new original songs. The opening performance at 6:30 PM will feature the Shawn Bell Quartet. Local trombonist and educator Shawn Bell is a teaching artist through O-pa's Jazz Academy program.
