Enjoy top-drawer Virginia-based jazz courtesy of the Jae Sinnett Trio, led by Tidewater-based percussionist and music educator Jae Sinnett who also hosts a popular radio show himself. Jae is joined by one of a prominent fraternity of VCU Jazz graduates under professor Doug Richards…that would be bassist Terry Burrell. And on piano, a 27-year-old Virginia Beach native who has caught the attention of some of the music industry’s most prominent figures, including Quincy Jones. A degenerative disease took his sight at age eleven, but Justin Kauflin has not looked back, and is one of the most exciting keyboard artists in the world today.
