Rick Flowers – inDIGenous Jazz Series

Fri September 21, 2018 @ 9:30 pm

Free

The inDIGenous Jazz Series is presented by Madison Music Collective, The Greater Madison Jazz Consortium, and the Wisconsin Union Theater. Concerts begin at 7:30 pm and are held in the Memorial Union Play Circle at the Wisconsin Union Theater, 800 Langdon St. Each concert is free, all-ages, and open to the public.

Rick Flowers grew up deeply immersed in the sounds of funk, soul and blues. His musical journey began at the ripe age of eight with the saxophone, though as he developed as a musician he found himself more at home behind the drum set. His early years were spent in South Central Los Angeles and some of his first gigs were playing in his father’s blues band. A force in the Madison music scene ever since, you might have caught him at running the jam at R Place on Park Street, accompanying countless artists around town, or co-leading an ensemble with Corey Wilkes featuring Harold Rayford at this year’s Greater Isthmus Jazz Festival. A devout Christian, Flowers works to bridge the gap between jazz music and gospel, creating stirring, soulful music in the process. He first started writing for this ensemble last year in preparation for a well-received set at Strollin’ Middleton.
