5-8pm: The Shrine Sunday Jazz Jam Session with Lu Reid

Spontaneous Jazz does not happen at Lincoln Center...or BAM!!! It is still in Harlem, where my friends and I live it every day. All the musicians on these streets are stars. When I was a kid and I first heard the sweet language of that magical Jazz I was hooked for life. You just soaked it up and couldn't help but be moved by it as you walked the streets. I can still feel that kaleidoscope of sound, and I want to bring it to you each and every Sunday.

The Funk of Forty Thousand Years started in August 2007 in Michigan. The core mission is to deliver live organic funk and soul to the masses.

Yasin Jackson has been writing and singing for many years and pounced on the opportunity to join the band. Her voice has been compared to Carole King, Erykah Badu and others. Her lyrics and vocal scats provide plenty of food for thought. Bassist Michael P. Jackson is the main composer and brought the band together. He started playing music at the age of 8, learning clarinet. Through the years he has learned many instruments including alto, tenor, and berry sax. At age 19 a date with a bass would change things forever. The Funk of Forty Thousand Years features one of the hottest rhythm sections on the scene today. In February 2008 the band completed the 2008 RPM Challenge to write, record, mix, master and press an album of 100% original material in one month. The album �One Foot� is available at all shows and will be on itunes in the coming months. The band has set its sights on every town needing some funk East of the Mississippi and plans a West Coast stint in late 2008.
