Celebrating the lives and legacies of legendary tenor saxophonists Rusty Bryant, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, and Gene Walker, the concert will include a world premiere work composed by Columbus Jazz Orchestra principal arranger and saxophonist, Chad Eby, and feature a roster of top area saxophonists and instrumentalists. It’s especially fitting that the event takes place at the historic Lincoln Theatre where Rusty Bryant, Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Gene Walker are all inductees in the Lincoln Theatre Walk of Fame.
Tenor Titans of the Capital City is sponsored by Fahn and Denny Tishkoff.
Saxophonists appearing on the program include Eddie Bayard, Devin Coons, Michael Cox, Chad Eby, Randy Mather, Pete Mills, Bryan Olsheski, Byron Rooker, and Shawn “Thunder” Wallace on saxophones.
Jon Eshelman and Dave Powers will handle piano and Hammond B3 organ duties, with Tom Carroll and Kevin Turner on guitar, Roger Hines on bass, James Gaiters, Joe Ong and Jim Rupp on drums, and Zach Compston on congas.
