Event Details

Dr. Rackle And The Sound Griots was formed in 1995 by Raymond "Dr. Rackle" Williams in Hartford, Connecticut. Raymond was given the name Dr. Rackle by his teacher and mentor Jackie McLean, who is also known as Dr. Jackle. The song "The Griot", recorded on Jackie McLean's Album "Fire And Love" which was released by Bluenote Records, was composed by Williams, who was just becoming a member of McLean's band in 1993. The "Griot" was written in reference to McLean, as the term "griot" means a knowledgeable and wise person who passes that knowledge on to the community through music,poetry,and storytelling.

Doors open at 5:30.   Concert 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
