Frank Lacy Sextet will perform an eclectic mix of free form jazz and up-dated
arrangements of modern expression in jazz today. Lacy is leader of 20
ensembles spanning jazz, classical, blues, rock, and R&B. He's won Downbeat
Magazine’s Talent Deserving Wider Recognition four times consecutively, and in
2016, won Downbeat Magazine’s Rising Star Male Jazz Vocalist. In 2014
JazzTimes wrote: “He wields the trombone with a facility that belies the horn’s
bulky build, letting loose with long, loud notes whose endings he twists into
gymnastic tremolos.”
Lacy has played with Lionel Hampton, Illinois Jacquet, Lester Bowie, Henry
Threadgill, Art Blakey, McCoy Tyner, and the Mingus Big Band. He performed
with the Mingus group at St. Andrew’s in 2013, and he is welcomed back.
This concert is made possible in part with funds from the 2019 Decentralization
Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts,
administered by DVAA, and thru the generosity of local businesses and
individuals, as well as St. Andrew’s Episcopal Mission. However these grants
and contributions do not cover all our expenses and we still need to raise
additional funds to cover artistic fees. Please make checks out to St. Andrew’s
Mission and send to PO Box 55, Woodbourne NY 12788. Contributions are tax-
