Arts Council of Baton Rouge Presents: Jazz Listening Room with Brad Walker

A pioneer that mixes R&B, Indie, Jazz, and modern rock for your listening pleasure.

Event DetailsPurchase Tickets

Modern jazz, incorporating elements of R&B, indie music, and rock characterizes the music of saxophonist Brad Walker. Originally from North Carolina, he came to study music at LSU, and after earning his degree, he spent three years in New York City, listening to and learning from the legendary virtuosos there. Inspired to make his mark on the music world, Brad left NYC and settled into the perfect place for a young saxophonist: New Orleans.

Upon arrival, Brad delved head first into the New Orleans music scene and created his own modern jazz quintet. He enlisted some of the city’s musical heavyweights to fulfill his vision: Simon Lott, Brian Seeger, James Singleton, and pianists Oscar Rossignoli and Doc Sharp. The mutual respect between these musicians has helped cultivate Brad’s musical vision into an exciting reality. Together they seamlessly blend the language of modern jazz with electric flavors of rock, funk, and soul, creating a distinct sound that stands out in today’s vibrant New Orleans music scene.


This event will be the Hartley/Vey Studio Theatre and is a part of the Arts Council's Jazz Listening Room series.
