John Calloway is world-renown as a flautist extraordinare, multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger specializing in jazz and latin music. He has performed with many renowned jazz and Latin music artists throughout the world, as his compositions have received Grammy recognition. His group Diaspora mixes music from many idioms in an unique and innovative way. It includes David Belove (Bass), Murray Low (piano), Dave Flores (drums) and Mike Olmos (trumpet).
This concert is part of the Jazz Vespers series, where spirtiual services and jazz are presented in an integrated format. The format first appeared when the late Reverend John Garcia Gensel started an evening service at St. Peter's Lutheran Church in NYC in 1961. It was designed for those musicians of a growing night ministry who couldn't make it to Sunday morning service after playing those late Saturday night gigs. He invited them to perform "a worship service by and for jazz musicians; the public is invited." The Jazz Vespers series has since spread worldwide.
