Evolution of the Blues presented by Voza Rivers, Executive Producer / 360 Entertainment International.
Evolution of the Blues Tribute was inspired by the song Evolution of the Blues by Wallace Roney and his revelations about the influence of Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter and other masters. The great Jon Hendricks produced a play called Evolution of the Blues in similar tribute.
We carry on in this tradition as we present the evolution of jazz from generation to generation, originating in Africa and flowing to the Caribbean, New Orleans, St. Louis, New York, Detroit, Philadelphia, all across the Diaspora. Evolution of the Blues also pays homage to Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, and many others who continue to influence international music.
Participating artists include: Wallace Roney, Sandra Reaves-Phillips, Cynthia Holiday, Urban Gureilla Orchestra, Paulette McWilliams, Joey Morant, Ronnie Burrage, Hank Nashiyama, Rodney Jones, many others including young emerging stars.
The Evolution of the Blues Tour is an Amazing Live Tribute of Spirituals, Blues, Jazz and Soul
