Some of the nation’s best jazz artists and outstanding local acts will take the Kennedy Plaza stage for the 14th annual Chicken Bone Beach Jazz on the Beach Series –one of Atlantic City’s favorite summertime traditions.
The Chicken Bone Beach Historical Foundation, Inc., and Atlantic City Free Public Library present this free concert series, which takes place on Thursdays in July and August from 7-10 p.m. at Kennedy Plaza, located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk between Mississippi and Georgia avenues.
The schedule features: Thursday, July 4: Reuben Wilson. A former pro boxer, Reuben Wilson is hailed as a godfather of acid jazz – a genre that combines jazz, funk, hip-hop and soul. He began to earn that lofty status with the release of “On Broadway” in the late 1960s. “Got To Get Your Own,” the title track to his 1974 album, gained great popularity on the dance club scene in Europe in the ’80s. The opening act is Tony Day & the Across the Globe Band.
Thursday, July 11: Steve Kroon Jazz Sextet. For two decades, conga virtuoso Steve Kroon served as Luther Vandross’ go-to percussionist – appearing on seven platinum albums and 15 world tours – and has backed Aretha Franklin, Roberta Flack and Diana Krall. Kroon’s Jazz Sextet produces a melodic, adventurous Afro-Cuban and Brazilian-inflected sound all its own. The opening act is the Richard Tucker Quartet.
Thursday, July 18: Christopher Dean Sullivan Quartet featuring Angel Rose. The Jazz Journalists Association once stated that Christopher Dean Sullivan is “a bassist whose authoritative and bluesy bendings of the notes honor his affection for legends such as Slam Stewart as well as Ray Brown.” Angel Rose is a Grammy nominated vocalist. The opening act is Pam Walker & Friends.
Thursday, July 25: Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers. Timbales player Henry “Pucho” Brown helped introduce the Boogaloo movement. Brown founded His Latin Soul Brothers in 1959, and the group was well-known for fusing Jazz, Latin, soul and funk. According to All About Jazz, “no one has done more to bring together Latin jazz and soul-jazz than Henry ‘Pucho’ Brown.” The group gained new fans in the 1990s in Britain, where his music was a hit with the acid jazz crowd. The opening act is Latin Wave.
