Jazz Legend Performs Piece Inspired By Inner Harbor

Free Fall Baltimore


Free Fall Baltimore kicks off tomorrow. For the entire month of October, artists and arts organizations all around Baltimore will offer free concerts, exhibitions, and performances. One of the most highly anticipated of these will take place Saturday afternoon when the great jazz saxophonist, composer and teacher Carl Grubbs presents a piece inspired by Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. 

The piece is called “Inner Harbor Suite Revisited: A Tribute to Baltimore,” and Carl Grubbs joins Tom in the studio, along with his wife, Barbara Harrell Grubbs who produces events like this one for their organization, Contemporary Arts. Grubbs will present his Inner Harbor Suite at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor Saturday afternoon at 4:00.  Because of the probability of inclement weather, the venue for the concert has been changed.  It will take place in the Ballroom of the Pier Five Hotel, adjacent to Pierce's Park, where the concert was originally scheduled.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
