“Lil’ Maceo” Kareem Walkes
August 5, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
International Saxophonist Kareem Walkes, is quickly becoming one of contemporary jazz’s most thrilling and emotive performers, and continues to stand out and push boundaries as a composer, performer, and recording artist. He’s becoming the go-to sax-man for artists like Cyril Neville, Li’nard’s Many Moods, and Blues Hall Of Famer Slam Allen. Kareem’s playing, though inspired by Maceo Parker and Candy Dulfer, among others, displays his own fresh ideas and distinctive tone. Born and raised in Queens New York, home to many Jazz legends like Louis Armstrong, Count Basie to name a few, Kareem has been breathing powerful, soulful, raw energy into his saxophone since the age of 18.
