WESTPORT, Conn. -- Acclaimed jazz vocalist Giacomo Gates will perform the music of Gil-Scott Heron and Miles Davis at the Westport Arts Center on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m.
Tickets are $22.50 for members and $25 for non-members. You can purchase them here or call (203) 222-7070. The Art Center is located at 51 Riverside Ave.
Gates has been described as a sonorous baritone who uses his voice to imitate a variety of instruments. He teaches regularly at Wesleyan University, the Hartford Conservatory of Music, and New Haven’s Neighborhood Music School.
His last two albums, "The Revolution will be Jazz" and "Miles Tones," were dedicated to the music of Gil-Scott Heron and Miles Davis.
"There was a whole bunch of other stuff that Gil recorded about the urban experience that I would have had no business singing," said Gates, who is white. "I had to choose songs that I connected with personally, as a jazz artist."
He is known for his interaction with a live audience.
