FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Columbus, Ohio.
NATIONAL RECORDING JAZZ ARTIST PHILLIP “DOC” MARTIN COMING TO COLUMBUS, OHIO
National recording jazz artist Phillip “Doc” Martin will be the featured artist for “A Night of Jazz and Gospel” in Columbus, OH on Sunday, April 24, 2016. The event will be at The FC in Pickerington, Ohio at 6pm eastern time.
It did not take much time after his 2003 debut release, Saxappeal, to gain national recognition. Since then, the Washington, D.C. native has released Pride and Joy (2007), Realization (2009), and Good Day at Work (2013). He is also releasing a new album, Pocket Love, on March 18th of this year. His smooth jazz music has created opportunities to work with a number of internationally-renowned music artists, such as Grammy Award nominated Kirk Whalum, Gerald Albright, and Charlie Parker.
Phillip Martin will be joined by Columbus Gospel Soul trio Let Eternity Open, popularly known as L.E.O. Since their inception just a couple of years ago, L.E.O. has been one of the most popular local artists, and their support has opened doors to work with Gospel greats such as J.J. Hairston & Youthful Praise.
“A Night of Jazz and Gospel” is an event that will raise awareness of autism, which is prevalent in 1 in 68 births in America. Moreover, according to the Autism Society, autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability, with more than 3.5 Americans living with an autism spectrum disorder. Autism services cost U.S. citizens 236-262 billion dollars annually, and early diagnosis can reduce the cost of autism services by over 90 billion dollars.
