Conversations about Jazz & Other Distractions hosted by former jazz radio host and founder of Notorious Jazz, Carl Anthony, features original members of Jaspects, the innovative band famous for blending hip-hop and jazz and creatively “redefining all aspects of jazz.” This virtual event via Zoom is free for Hammonds House Museum members and $5 for non-members.
Atlanta-based Jaspects was founded while many of the members attended Morehouse College. They were a staple of the city's music scene, sold thousands of CDs and formed creative collaborations with P.J. Morton, Janelle Monáe, Tony Hightower and many others. Group members were Henry C. Conerway, III on drums, Terrence Brown on keys, Jaye Price on alto saxophone, Dwayne R. Dugger, Jr. on tenor saxophone, Jimmy King on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Jon-Christopher Sowells on bass.
