Charleston Jazz Festival: Oscar Rivers Jazz Quartet
April 20 @ 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Oscar Rivers, Charleston’s Jazz Patriarch, made a name for himself in 1970’s Chicago, playing with everyone from Charlie Parker, Sonny Stitt, Stevie Wonder, BB King, the Temptations, and the Quincy Jones Orchestra. Oscar is featured in An Encyclopedia of South Carolina Jazz and Blues Musicians, which documents South Carolinian musicians from the 19th century to the present. Truly a Lowcountry legend, Oscar and his band perform all jazz styles, with a focus on Standards, Latin and Jazz-Soul crossover.
