Rodney Whitaker Quintet – Part Two
On Monday, January 22, 2018 we had a refreshing return visit from the Rodney Whitaker Quintet. Our 5th – 8th graders gathered in the Neinas auditorium to hear the smooth sounds and vocals from this group.
We learned a little about the history of jazz, and listened to musical selections made famous by Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington , and others. Mr. Whitaker likes to include a little jazz history within his performances.
We love the music and appreciate the time the musicians and singer spend with us. This was the second of three planned performances this school year. We’re looking forward to the magic this group brings on our third and final visit.
