Join us for a performance by J. D. Allen with the George Caldwell Quartet!

Hailed by The New York Times as “a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard driving style,” J. D. Allen is a bright light on today’s international jazz scene. His unique and compelling voice on the instrument has earned Allen years of critical attention. Originally from Detroit, Allen’s apprenticeship, anchored by his lengthy tenure with Betty Carter, occurred largely in New York, where he worked with legends Lester Bowie, George Cables, Ron Carter, Louis Hayes, Frank Foster Big Band, Rufus Reid, and Geri Allen.   

Please note: due to ongoing construction by the City of Buffalo, a significant portion of the south side of the museum’s campus will be fenced, and public parking on Lincoln Parkway near Hoyt Lake will be unavailable. While space for the Lipsey Summer Jazz program will not be impacted, visitors may not have access to shade trees as in years past. The museum encourages guests to bring umbrellas for personal shade and to prepare for warm weather conditions. 


Lipsey Summer Jazz at the AKG is presented by The Stanford and Judith Lipsey Foundation.
