The first concert Quentin Baxter’s series will feature trumpeter/vocalist Joe Gransden.
Accompanying Gransden for the concert will be pianist Tyrone Jackson, bassist Neal Starkey, and drummer Quentin E. Baxter.
An accomplished bandleader, Joe Gransden has performed worldwide and released 16 CD’s under his own name. Renowned first for the hard bop approach of his trumpet, Gransden’s singing voice has been compared to that of Chet Baker and Frank Sinatra.
“Joe is a young man with an old soul and a classic voice. He is a great new talent, with a wonderful sense of humor to boot. And don’t forget, he plays a hell of a trumpet!”
– Clint Eastwood
“Joe has an innate ability to connect with an audience. His singing and trumpet playing are world class. Throw in his 16 Piece Big Band and you have something very special!”
– Smokey Robinson
