The De­pot to host two jazz or­gan­ists

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - SUNDAY LIFE -

The De­pot and Jazz in June wel­comes jazz or­gan­ists Gar­rett Ja­cob­son and Jeremy Thomas to the Win­ter Wind stage at 7 p.m. Jan. 21 at 200 S Jones Ave. for a rare show­case of the Ham­mond or­gan. Free re­fresh­ments will be served and wine will be avail­able for pur­chase.

The Ham­mond or­gan was but a cu­rios­ity when

Fats Waller and Count Basie brought at­ten­tion to it in the early 1900s. It wasn’t un­til a young Jimmy Smith came along in the 1950s when the in­stru­ment was fully em­braced in jazz for its ex­treme util­ity and unique and ex­pres­sive sound.

Tick­ets are $20. For tick­ets and more in­for­ma­tion, go to nor­man­de­ or call 307-9320.
