Ernest Dawkins Saxes and percussion, Justin Thomas Vibes, Jumaane Taylor Tap dance

Ernest Khabeer Dawkins was a neighbor of Anthony Braxton as a child. He played bass and drums early in life before switching to saxophone in 1973. During that decade he began studying with members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, such as Joseph Jarman and Chico Freeman. He is a long time member of the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble and leader of his own New Horizons Ensemble. One of his life goals is to represent the African American cultural experience through his music. His musical art form reflects the rich background and cultural distinctions of African American life. His extraordinary talent not just as a musician but a composer is represented in his many creative projects and discography of eleven critically acclaimed CD’s.

 

 

 

JAZZ ON A SUMMERS DAY presents uncompromising jazz and creative improvised music (and more) in an idyllic rural setting perched on the shores of Lake Michigan. The series Jazz on a Summers Day presented by portoluz is a chance to encounter some of the world's most innovative and compelling artists in a seductive arts-centric and semi-rural environment- a perfect place for deep listening and untrammeled creativity.

 

The “ballroom” of the historic Lakeside Inn is a mid-size wooden room filled with arts and crafts era antiques. The ballroom looks out over Lake Michigan and in this cozy and informal setting, the performance unfolds. The magic of the environment, the virtuosity of the musicians, the intimacy of the performance and the natural acoustics of the wooden room conspire to create a deeply meditative experience.
