Jazz Beat: Shades of Jade at the Green Lady Lounge



Shades of Jade bills itself as a "neo-soul quartet." Josh Williams winds an often eloquent, R&B-influenced trumpet through each song as if on a journey. Eddie Moore's keyboards are the guide, weaving notes into solos of life and imagination. Dominique Sanders' bass grounds the group, while Julian Goff's drumming rhythms drive it forward. The music comes together with a leisurely, exotic feel. It's neo-soul, yes, but a version of it that has evolved from Kansas City's classic jazz traditions.
