Willie Daniels To Perform At The Sea Bird Jazz Lounge

After a successful engagement with the Starlight Jazz Serenade, which featured the sounds and genius of leading jazz artists and award winning musicians, noted gospel and jazz pianist Willie Daniels and the 2-Jazzy Crew Band are back in rare form.

They are scheduled to appear at the The Sea Bird Jazz Lounge, 730 E. Broadway in Long Beach, CA on Saturday, March 28, 2009.

In a career spanning more than three decades, gospel and jazz pianist Willie Daniels has forged a reputation for exploring the worlds of jazz, gospel and the music of his hometown, Memphis, finding in each the soul of musical expression.

Daniels' performance will highlight new jazz music by the 2-Jazzy Crew and he will be accompanied by renowned jazz songbird Rita Shelby. Daniels' melodic chords and jazz interpretations harken back to the day when jazz was king.

The single "Holding Down This Forty", co-written by Willie Daniels and Rita Shelby is rising the charts and has already reached steady rotation in major jazz radio markets.

Daniels is also busy juggling several film and music projects having recently contributed closing music to the film "Kings Of The Evening" which stars Lynn Whitfield, Glynn Turman and Tyson Beckford.
