Michael Jellick Sextet featuring tap dancer, Claudia Rahardjanoto
Since age 14, Michael Jellick has been a mainstay on the Detroit Jazz scene and beyond. A forward-moving pianist, he’s had the pleasure of playing and/or recording with such greats as Bobby McFerrin, Sheila Jordan, Christian McBride, Common, Rodney Whitaker, James Carter, Karriem Riggins, Marion Hayden, and many others. This year’s performance is the premiere of an entirely NEW Sextet which blends several styles of jazz with other genres, as well a tap dancer who is a full part of the project. The end result culminates into a wonderfully unique nexus of music and percussive dancing!
