I just saw this young man throw down on the bass at MSU. Amazing concert led by professor and jazz great Rodney Whitaker’
Yesss… He’s a BAD, BAD young man!
talking about Brandon Rose & Soul Therapy Concert at the Performance Studio
The Carr Center has a unique history in Detroit, fulfilling a critical need for elevating Black artistic excellence in visual arts, dance, arts education, and jazz.
To simply call Rodney (Whitaker)a teacher would be an understatement. He has made such an impact on my life — as he has for so many young musicians — as a teacher, mentor and example of what a man should be.
