This Sunday, community arts advocates Ketu Oladuwa and Michael Patterson are bringing a new kind of experience to the Fort Wayne music scene.
That's launch night for their "Jazz Talk Live: Big Apple Jazz Club Series," and its new, community-friendly home is Wunderkammer Company, on the city's south side.
It's a way, according to Oladuwa and Patterson, to give artists an undisturbed opportunity to be heard, and audiences the best possible chance to listen.
In traditional "Big Apple" style, two sets will be presented, both performed by "A Love Supreme Ensemble."
Slated to be a once a month event, the next two will vary weekend evenings, to fit into Wunderkammer's 2017 schedule, but the following nine shows in the series are officially scheduled for the 2nd Sunday of each month, beginning in February of 2018.
Earlier this week, WBOI's Julia Meek invited the two into the studio to discuss the inspiration behind such an adventure, and what lines of communication they hope to opening with this "musical give and take."
