ABOUT

MUSE/IQUE in conjunction with The New 9th and the Central Avenue Jazz Festival present: 

CENTRAL AVENUE: An Extraordinary Story of the South LA Music Legends Who Changed the World

This special open house is free to the community. RSVPs are required. Seating will be provided.

Back by popular demand, we’re remounting one of our most popular, talked-about performances of our 2022 season. If you missed it the first time, now is your chance to celebrate the legacy of jazz that began on Central Avenue, the west coast’s answer to the Harlem Renaissance.

Reprising their original roles are the inimitable Sy Smith, LaVance Colley, and The DC6 Singers Collective (vocals) and our stellar band: Ian Martin (bass), Donald Barrett (drums), Tony Pulizzi (guitar), and the legendary Myron McKinley, music director and keyboardist of Earth, Wind and Fire.
