JAZZ @ The CAM: Brian Miller--SOLD OUT!

Thursday, 4/4/2019
6:30PM-8:00PM  
"We will be doing a nice blend of jazz standards, a couple originals and a bunch of feel good music.... I always say, I don't play technical music. I play feel good music and if you leave the show and don't feel good and uplifted then I've failed you as my listener... but if you give me chance I think I can get your ear and tug at your hearts swing strings..." - Brian Miller

Sought after by jazz, gospel, and R&B musicians alike, saxophonist Brian Miller (www.brianmillermusic.net) is new to the Jazz @ The CAM series. For this concert Miller will perform originals, standards and more with Andrew Berinson on piano, Donovan Cheatum on drums and a bassist. An original member of the John Brown Quintet and both the John Brown Big Band and Little Big Band, Miller has performed with vocalists Eve Cornelious, Kim Burrell, Nnenna Freelon, Phil Perry, and most recently Dee Dee Bridgewater. Miller has shared the stage with Terrence Blanchard, Branford Marsalis, T.S. Monk Jr., Dr. Lonnie Smith, Vincent Gardner and saxophonist Frank Foster; performed at the Montreux and Vienne Jazz Festivals; for President Bill Clinton at the White House twice and recorded his original composition "Desmond Street" with the world-renowned North Carolina Central University Jazz Ensemble.

LITERARY: Philip Gerard "The Last Battleground "

Sunday, 4/7/2019
3:00PM-5:00PM  
Join Philip Gerard for the launch of "The Last Battleground: The Civil War Comes to North Carolina". Philip will share insights into his research and writing process and read from the book. Then Dargan Frierson (bass and harmony) will join Philip as they perform Civil War songs. A book signing and reception will follow the program. Philip Gerard is a professor of creative writing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. His previous books include "Down the Wild Cape Fear".

Free and open to the public. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.

"Philip Gerard is best known as an award-winning creative writer, but this book shows he is also an exceptional historian. With each vignette in The Last Battleground, Gerard opens portals to the past for North Carolina during the Civil War. A great read!" --Chris E. Fonvielle Jr., author of "The Wilmington Campaign: Last Rays of Departing Hope"

"Gerard's powerful narrative covers the Civil War in North Carolina in all its complexity, ranging from the coast to the Piedmont and Sandhills to the mountains. In the process, he introduces us to a vast panoply of characters and, by means of his vivid prose, makes both them and the events they participated in come to life."
--Mark L. Bradley, author of "This Astounding Close: The Road to Bennett Place"
