Jazz Gallery Mentorship Concert: Jonathan Finlayson feat. Immanuel Wilkins
We’ve partnered with the Jazz Gallery to continue the tradition of jazz mentorship. Here veteran trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson takes budding saxophonist Immanuel Wilkens under his wing for a performance inspired by Finlayson’s approach to composition and bandleading.
The Jazz Gallery serves as an international cultural center where the youngest generation of emerging professional jazz musicians are nurtured with opportunities to collaborate with their peers, discover and refine their creativity, and perform in front of eager audiences. Through residencies, workshops and exhibitions, we provide a platform for artists to discover their unique voice and a home for established musicians to continue to experiment and grow. Together with The National Jazz Museum in Harlem and The Jazz Gallery, artists and audiences come together from around the world to explore new creative ideas, collaborate and celebrate jazz as a dynamic art form that reflects our ever-changing world.
