The July 21 Conversations with Sonny features a double bonanza event with the legendary Dottie Dodgion. Jazz historian and JAZZ 91.1/KCSM-FM personality Sonny Buxton will kick off the afternoon with a videotaped conversation with fabulous drummer and vocalist Dottie Dodgon. That will be followed by a performance with Ms. Dodgion and her trio. The 82 year old artist has performed around the world with the greats in jazz and is an accomplished musician in her own right, particularly notable at a time when few women made it as a drummer in jazz.
Once a regular on the San Francisco scene with the likes of Charlie Mingus and Nick Esposito, she most often performs these days in Spanish Bay and Peeble Beach. You will not want to miss this rare San Francisco appearance by a woman who has stories and talent galore. That's Sunday, July 21 at 3:00PM in the Jazz Heritage Center's Theater at 1330 Fillmore Street (next door to our Lush Life Gallery). Tickets are $25. A special thanks to our sponsor, Wells Fargo Bank.
