Kyle Roussel Organ Trio
Saturday, July 14
Shows at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.
Free Admission

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation proudly presents the Kyle Roussel Organ Trio in a special concert on Saturday, July 14, at the Jazz & Heritage Center, with shows at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Admission is free. No tickets or advance registration are required. There is no reserved seating.

A graduate of the famed New Orleans Center for Creative Arts and the University of New Orleans, Kyle Roussel began playing the piano at age nine, studying classical music before moving on to perform in church and explore jazz in his teenage years.  These days, Kyle is equally adept in the worlds of jazz, classical, funk, gospel, rhythm and blues, and rock. He currently performs all around the world with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. He has worked with a huge variety of artists, including the Headhunters, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Christian Scott, Donald Harrison Jr., Delfeayo Marsalis, John Boutte, Shannon Powell, Roland Guerin, Bonerama, Glen David Andrews, Mia Borders, Khris Royal and Topsy Chapman. 

For this concert, Kyle will perform in an unusual setting: a Jimmy Smith-style organ trio. This show, which culminates our concert season, will be both interesting and fun.

Joining Kyle will be Jermal Watson on drums, and Kenaniah Turner on bass.

"I'm really looking forward to this," Kyle says. "I grew up playing organ in church, so this brings me back to my roots. I'm going to do some New Orleans stuff, some originals, some jazz, funk and gospel. It'll be in the classic B3 trio sound but with my own take on it."
