Trumpeter and composer Leslie Drayton will kickoff the holiday season with a special Evening of Jazz that includes his original compositions, jazz standards, and a few holiday favorites. The ensemble will include some of Mr. Drayton’s new friends that range from percussionist extraordinaire Marcus Alexander, teenage phenom Tyler Henderson on keyboards, flute virtuoso and alto saxophonist Darryl Richards, and TSU jazz studies major Weldon Scott on bass.
Leslie Drayton has been an advisor to Live Music Movement Foundation (LMMF) since inception of the organization in July 2011. He has helped to set policy and provide direction. He and his former band ‘Fun’ performed at the first LMMF musical event, A Sunday Jazz Party, on December 4, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. This collaboration and performance allowed LMMF to gain immediate audience acceptance and financial support because of Leslie Drayton’s musical renown in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
