Aug.19, 2005 – Have you ever noticed how artistic souls are oftentimes accomplished in numerous mediums? Friday, August 19th's Sunset Jazz in Frederiksted's featured artist is no exception to that conundrum. Being one of the most talented jazz saxophonists in the territory, Dimitri "Pikey" Copemann, a St. Croix native, teaches art at Lew Muckel School and is also an accomplished painter and poet. He has been a jazz fan since his Central High School days. Copemann has performed with some of the top bands in St. Croix including VI Jazz Ensemble, Jamesy & the Happy 7, Free Association and Taco & the Playboys. Listening to this fine artist play is pure enjoyment; watching him play is an additional treat! The audience can ?feel" his music as he's manipulating his sax to bring forth all kinds of marvelous sounds—- it is, indeed, magical. Ahhhh…..artistic souls!
Joining the artistic Copemann on stage is a host of creative, multi-talented geniuses in their own right! Check out this line up: Vocals- the silken voice of Rufus James, Guitar- Sen. Ronnie Russell, Keyboards- Benjamin Jacobs-El, Bass-Marsvyn David, Drums-Ken "Afra" Daley, Congas-Charles Farrell.
Yes, it's safe to say that Sunset Jazz concert goers are in for a musical treat with this ensemble of musicians!
