Southern Tour – Houston Stop

Vibraphonist Jalen Baker
Jalen Baker, recipient of the Jazz Road touring grant, and his quartet will make a stop in Houston on May 29, 2021. The grant is “designed for emerging and mid-career artists around the entire country. Jazz Road Tours supports small, three- to six-site tours at an array of venue types, often in rural communities and other areas traditionally underserved by the genre.”
2020 was a chaotic year fraught with rapid change and uncertainty. It was also a time of stillness and reflection. The pandemic forced many people to slow down. Some chose to take a much-needed break. Some chose to focus on family life. Others, like Weldon Scott, chose to dig in and push the bounds of their creativity.
The year 2020 has ended. We are well on our way into 2021. Looking back to March 2020, we never could have imagined that the whole world would come to a screeching halt, but it did. 2020 is a year that will be talked about and studied for generations to come. There is hope that the world will get back to some sense of normalcy, and it may take some time before we return to our regular routines, but we will get there.
LMMF partnered with Joe Langford of Art Official Intelligence in October 2020 to host an Instagram training session. Use of Instagram provides a new medium for LMMF to share information and promote the organization to new supporters.
Dear LMMF Family,
Since our last email correspondence on March 4, the world has literally turned upside down. On March 5, Artistic Director Leslie Drayton and I traveled to Prague in the Czech Republic for an idyllic birthday vacation. We returned home March 12, exactly 24 hours before the ban on international travel was initiated and nothing has been the same since.
Jalen Baker, jazz vibraphonist and percussionist, gave an outstanding performance at Live Music Movement Foundation’s “Live Performances in Unusual Spaces” event on January 26, 2020 at Notsuoh. He also has the distinction of being the first artist to debut LMMF’s “New Artist Series” for 2020.
