For a quarter century the AfroSolo Arts Festival has played an essential role in nurturing, promoting and presenting art and culture from the African Diaspora through presenting solo performances, the visual and literary arts and community engagement. A production of the AfroSolo Theatre Company, the 25th AfroSolo Arts Festival kicks off with this free jazz concert featuring an all-star quintet drawn from AfroSolo alumni.

Piano master Tammy Hall has performed high profile concerts with vocal stars Kim Nalley, Denise Perrier, Holly Near, and Laurie Anderson. Veteran drummer Leon Joyce Jr. was longtime accompanist for vocal legend Nancy Wilson and piano star Ramsey Lewis. Renowned bassist/composer Marcus Shelby, captivating harpist/vocalist Destiny Muhammad and rising young Oakland saxophonist Ranzel Merritt round out the band.
