Late Night Grooves: Mo E Collective 8/18

Greetings, This week I'm very excited to welcome fellow Kranzberg Arts Foundation Artist Ben Reece to Late Night Grooves!  Ben is a fellow "SIU Cat" who has established himself as one of the most diverse sax players in town.  I first officially played with Ben in Brothers Lazaroff years ago.

You can find Ben leading his own groups and playing with a host of the top artists and bands in the the St. Louis region.  We'll be joined by fellow Mo E All-Star Duane "Jingo" Williams on percussion and Dhoruba Shakur on drums.

8/29 Sy Smith! Live in St. Louis with Mo Egeston All-Stars.  This is so exciting.  Sy is trumpeter Chris Botti's go to touring vocalist and a superb writer, producer and singer.  Any one who knows me well knows that Sy is one of my absolute favorites so suffice to say the All-Stars are honored to be her supporting band for this event.  Tickets are on Sale now!

9/9 LouFest Mo E All-Stars.  Sunday afternoon on the Jazz Stage!

9/23 Playful Pairings- teaming up with Karlovsky and Company again.  Details soon.

Pianist Maurice Mo Egeston's weekly Late Night #Grooves Series features a range of guest artists in trio and quartet settings Saturdays at Dark Room at The Grandel. Each night features 2 sets of music that blends the improvisational aesthetic of jazz with the groove elements of soul, funk, r & b, house, drum & bass, Latin and more. Featured artists will blend their original music and set list favorites with originals and reworks by Mo, and are supported frequently by members of Mo E All-Stars/ Mo E Trio

The Mo E Collective showcases the instrumental side of the Late Night Grooves roster and will feature drummers, keyboard players and horn players from the STL jazz, soul & groove scene. Featured artists will include musicians who are leaders themselves, Dark Room regulars and musical friends from Mo's past collaborations.
