‘Saxophone Evolutionary’ Shableek Will Be Back at the Davis Theatre Nov. 13

Shan “Shableek” Richardson, who calls himself a “saxophone evolutionary,” is bringing his band back to the Davis Theatre Thursday, Nov. 13. Shableek’s previous show closed the 2012-13 season and garnered a standing ovation from a very enthusiastic audience that has wanted him back ever since. Not only did the band play contemporary jazz, soul and rhythm and blues, but Shableek himself played alto, tenor and soprano sax in such a way that the instruments practically talked! Every song was played with energy and passion.
