Howard Wiley & Extra Nappy

November 15, 2017
9:30 pm
Madrone Art Bar

Howard Wiley & Extra Nappy Live Music at 9:30pm Extra Nappy offers a glimpse into an organically- developing musical movement encapsulating the vibrant history of African American music, from gospel, blues, jazz, R&B, and funk, all the way up to contemporary hip-hop. Bandleader Howard Wiley may still be a young lion in jazz years, but he's also cemented a reputation as the hardest bopster around, the purveyor of a retro aesthetic which wouldn't have been out of place when cool jazz was undergoing labor pains. A rotating cast of local players -- including Thomas Pridgen, Lionel "L.J." Holoman, Michael "Tiny" Lindsey, and Darian Gray -- joins Wiley for a full-blown session encompassing original numbers as well as inspired arrangements of classic songs. Special guest vocalists add an additional element of unpredictability on any given night. Witness and hear master-level groove played so originally, it's not just nappy, it's Extra Nappy.
