FREE Java and Jazz Concert: Johnny O'Neal 8/17 6pm Detroit Main Library

The Detroit Main Library presents Johnny O'Neal in Concert

Concert is outside on the Cass Lawn

The Detroit Library FREE Java and Jazz 2010 Concert Series continues on August 17th with a concert by Johnny O'Neal.  Johnny O'Neal is a giant who casts no shadow.  His appearance in the 2004 blockbuster film "Ray" soared his career to new heights.  In the Holly wood film O'Neal played the legendary Toledo jazz pianist Art Tatum. O'Neal's music has its dynamic heartbeat in gospel and the blues, but to hear him tear a strip off a bebop tune, at an outrageous tempo, sometimes defies the laws of pianist gravity.
