An Evening featuring Jazz Trumpeter Gerald Bailey
This evening, thought-provoking and genre-bending composer, trumpeter, and UIndy jazz trumpet professor Gerald Bailey performs with three members of the UIndy jazz faculty: pianist Steven Jones, bassist Brandon Meeks, and drummer Kenny Phelps. All four of these gentlemen are some of the Midwest’s most sought-after jazz artists and teachers. Bailey currently leads several groups combining acoustic instruments, jazz, and music technology. He has performed with such artists as Belle and Sebastian, Ty Segall, and The O’Jays; at the White House for the Obama administration in 2009 and 2012; and appeared in the Hollywood movie Public Enemies. Bailey has appeared on countless recordings for Bloodshot Records, Warner Bros, and Rabbit Factory, and his recent original work is currently featured on Press Pot Recordings and Cartilage Osseux Records.
No in-person audience for this event, due to COVID restrictions.
