Join Mike Cameron and an array of saxophone greats as the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame presents our annual celebration of Don Byas’ birth. This yearly birthday tribute to one of Oklahoma’s own jazz icons promises to be a night of world class saxophone music. Don Byas, who was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma in 1912, is known as one of the most influential saxophonists in American jazz. A jazz tenor saxophonist most frequently associated with the Bebop genre, Byas played with Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Art Blakey, and Dizzy Gillespie. To enjoy the jazz, call Bettie Downing at (918) 281-8609 and purchase your tickets. Members and Seniors enjoy discounted ticket prices at $10.00 each. General Admission tickets are only $15.00, or $20.00 for Reserved Table Seating. High school and middle school students admitted for only $5.00. The event is a part of the Jazz Hall’s Fall Concert Series. The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame is a 501(c)(3) non-profit cultural and educational organization, with a mission to inspire creativity and improve the quality of life for all Oklahomans through preservation, education, and performance of jazz, our uniquely American art form.
