Victor Haskins & Lonnie Liston Smith - “Invitation” (composed by Bronislau Kaper)
Richmond’s up-and-coming cornetist, Victor Haskins, has released part one of a collaboration with legendary pianist Lonnie Liston Smith. With video production by Craig Zirpolo of The Horn RVA/VCU and assistance from Mike Edmonds, Mackenzie Werner,Charlie Couch, and PJ Desutter, the performance took place at Sound of Music Studios. Some post-bop and swing styles find their way into the jazz number, and the timbres are warm and fill the room. Rounding out the sound are drummer Tony Martucci and bassist Matt Hall.
There are two more episodes in addition to this, and the makers are waiting for 1,000 views to release the next one! Get to viewing!
