** CANCELLED** 2022 Biamp PDX Jazz Festival - Lakecia Benjamin - presented by PDX Jazz

  February 26, 2022 8:00 PM

Doors Open: 7:00 PM


Voted by 2020 Downbeat Critics Poll Rising star alto saxophonist and Up and Coming Artist of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association, charismatic and dynamic saxophonist Lakecia Benjamin fuses traditional conceptions of jazz, hip hop, and soul. Benjamin’s electric presence and fiery sax work has shared stages with legendary artists, including Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys, The Roots, and Macy Gray. As the bandleader of Lakecia Benjamin and Soul Squad, she melds the vintage sounds of James Brown, Maceo Parker, Sly and the Family Stone, and the Meters with soaring, dance-floor worthy rhythms. 

Lakecia Benjamin’s latest album “Pursuance” is a multi generational masterpiece that takes one on a journey through the lineage of the music with the works of John and Alice Coltrane.
