The Memorial Day Jazz Jam Featuring Legendary Drummer Marion Booker!!! [5/30/2011]


BY Alex Wang [ May 30, 2011 at 09:18:26 ]

Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (the 30th in 2011). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. men and women who died while in the military service.

During World War II, the world considered America as the push for freedom and the music, Jazz as the sound of freedom, and it is ironic that the concept for Jazz music is improvisation or the freedom from restictions that other musical art-forms have had to endure.

The Monday Nite Jazz Jam wants to honor and salute those men and women who have bravely served and continue to serve in our armed forces!!!

We celebrate and do tribute to this special day by presenting the best Jam session in town as we present one of the most exciting drummers of all times, as he returns this week to take the Jazz Jam to another level!!!

We are proud to announce the return of the drummer to the stars, Marion Booker, early in his professional career, he performed as drummer with "Rock Legend and guitarist, Jimi Hendrix!!! Booker's credentials reads like a Who's Who in the music industry, he recorded and performed with Otis Redding, Ben E. King, The Temptations, Dianna Ross, organist Jimmy McGriff, Lonnie Smith, Roy Ayers and later joined Jazz legend George Benson who he toured and performed with for years!!!

On December 7, 1941, America found itself at war. Jazz went to war, too, and overseas, swing — still America's most popular music — would serve to remind the men and women of the armed forces of home. "Bandsmen today are not just jazz musicians," said Down Beat, "they are soldiers of music."

During World War II "The Chattanooga Choo Choo" was one of the most popular tunes coming out of America!!!
