THIS THURSDAY AND FRIDAY! Dionne Farris & Russell Gunn at Jazz Cafe Detroit

Jazz Cafe is proud to present the return of one of our favorite artists, the one-two punch of Grammy-nominated jazz trumpeter Russell Gunn and his Quartet featuring Grammy-winning vocalist Dionne Farris, as they combine for a very special two nights and 3 shows- Thursday, September 18 at 8PM and Friday, September 19th at 8pm and 10 pm in the intimate Jazz Cafe. 

The Russell Gunn Quartet, ensures an eclectic genre bending experience that fuses Ms Farris multi faceted vocal ability which melds, hip-hop, pop, soul, gospel, R&B and now with this innovative Quartet, she adds Jazz to her repertoire.

Dionne Farris sang on three songs with the hip hop group Arrested Development. In 1995, she had a solo hit single called "I Know", which hit number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1996. Then in 1997, she had another hit, "Hopeless" (written by Van Hunt) from the Love Jones soundtrack.

Trumpeter, Russell Gunn's virtuoso reach and command of all musical styles from funk to the avant-garde evidenced a serious new talent on the scene.

Gunn's eclectic musical approach also brought him together with artists like Cee-Lo , Maxwell, D'Angelo, Ne-Yo, Branford Marsalis, and Jazz at Lincoln Center, while continuing to perform with his own groups and push the boundaries of how music is heard.
