“Greg Jarrell is a man with an enormous heart and an enormous musical gift.” Combine that with the heartfelt storytelling and incredibly compelling voice of Dawn Anthony, and you have a night of music prepared to touch your soul. Anthony and Jarrell have mastered their duo, with a jazz series at Myers Park Baptist. In this presentation, their quartet will perform a combination of meaningful jazz standards, rewritten hymn favorites, and a little progressive jazz like Gregory Porter.
