CutTime celebrates black-American music with strong beat. This FREE evening program features the world premiere of The Legacy of Roland Hayes by star producer Patrice Rushen with the renowned tenor George Shirley and versatile pianist Alvin Waddles who will improvise solo.  Also on the program are the complete ballet Three Black Kings by Duke and Mercer Ellington and the Animato from Symphony No. 1 by William Grant Still. Add percussion and blend all this with Mr. CutTime's spicy Pork 'n Beans and the smash hit City of Trees for a very moving program!
