Vibraphonist and pianist James Hall - now 16 years old - has been performing as a soloist and leader of professional jazz groups since he was 11. He moved to Florida from California in 2019 and quickly teamed up with leading Florida bassist Marco Bojorquez and guitarist Abe Alam, leading duos, trios and quartets in the NSB/Daytona area. On Sunday June 6th he will be partnering with Marco and master drummer Greg Parnell to make his first appearance at Blue Bamboo Center for the Arts. The trio will play a program of mainstream modern jazz, ballads, and some of James' own compositions. Since moving to Florida James has focused on vibes, but he welcomes the opportunity to also perform on Blue Bamboo's grand piano in collaboration with Marco and Greg.
