Roger brings his RH Factor ensemble and he’ll play "Song for My Father," which he recorded with Horace Silver. He talks with Jim Cunningham about the legendary figures he has worked with. Roger provides memories of Silver and the 1965 session for Blue Note with label owner Alfred Lion in the studio. Of course you can get an autograph and a selfie on June 12 but the Kassia Ensemble, Jasmine Hearn, Staycee Pearl, Alumni Theater Company, Alia Musica, Dreams of Hope. Clara Kent, Afro Yaqui Ensemble and much more are part of the plan. The Museum is open with air conditioning and CDC guidelines in place.
