MSU faculty jazz septet perform the music of Tadd Dameron and Bud Powell. 

Special Guest includes jazz Harpist Brandee Younger, a fearless and versatile talent, she defies genres and labels as a classically-trained musician playing in the avant-garde tradition of her sonically forward predecessors Dorothy Ashby and Alice Coltrane. Younger delivers a consistently fresh take on the ancient instrument as an educator, concert curator, performer and leader of the Brandee Younger Quartet. Learn more about Brandee Younger at her website.
