Join us at The Jazz Playhouseand indulge in our jazz inspired food & drink selection to music by Mario Abney:
Chicago born and raised Jazz Trumpeter Mario Abney now of New Orleans fuses traditional and extended trumpet techniques in a most inventive way his strikingly personal instrumental vision endows the music with an infinite array of tonal color. Recognized for his ability to create pure musical dialog, and hear music in a universally spiritual way, he is definitely one of New Orleans most pioneering young jazz musicians.
As a musician and artist Mario believes “music is freedom, its a channel from a Higher Source, and there is so much freedom in the beauty of that”. As a composer Abneyʼs music can be heard on his album Spiritual Perception and radio stations such as, WWOZ New Orleans, WBOK New Orleans, WCSU Wilberforce Ohio, and several other radio stations and cable tv programs.
Currently Mario Abney is also a featured member of the Soul Apostles on the HBO tv series Treme.
