Live sessions on the Jazz Spot at Fusion Coffeehouse


Next Jazz Session:
This Saturday, June 10
1:00-3:00 p.m.

Featuring: Carter Elliott

This month is a special edition of the Fusion Coffeehouse Jazz Series as we welcome Carter Elliott back to the "JAZZ SPOT" for his first visit as a featured artist. Carter began attending the Series at a young age and quickly became a regular at the monthly sessions.

"It was apparent from his first few visits that Carter was not just interested in Jazz, but fully engaged," says host Raphael Semmes. It wasn't long before Carter's Dad asked for some teaching suggestions, and Raphael recommended keyboard virtuoso Knight Bruce for "next level" instruction and inspiration. From there Carter was on the fast track to jazz studies and performance at North Texas State University before his enrollment in the Music Industry program at MTSU focusing on music, studio production and songwriting. "Fully engaged" may be an understatement!

At any rate, on June 10th Tripp and Raphael proudly welcome Carter "home" for a bit of conversation about his musical journey thus far and lots of playing songs from a repertoire that ranges from standards by Duke Ellington and Errol Garner to selections by Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea.

Don't miss this special Saturday afternoon at Fusion for live Jazz with a bite to eat or maybe some Italian gelato. Early arrival recommended for best seating!
