Jesse Kramer Trio

Friday, June 8 @ 6pm
The O&W Acoustic Stage

Eclectic jazz continues on opening night with band leader and jazz percussionist Jesse Kramer arranging for Bobby Streng on sax, Damon Warmack on bass, and Ben Rolston on stand up bass. Born and raised in Ann Arbor and a grad of the U-M music program, Kramer released his first solo record, Acacia, in 2014, a tribute to the Africanisms that have shaped modern jazz and American music and culture. He says his “dynamics range from sensitive storytelling, to thunderous chaos.” A standout on the Ann Arbor scene, you’ll enjoy his unique drumming style that incorporates bebop, Afro-Cuban, Afro-Brazilian, funk, and fusion.
