Jazzing It Up With Dwan Bosman at the Red Light Cafe

Steaming hot jazz fusion from saxophonist Dwan Bosman was the special on the menu at the Red Light Cafe. Dwan attributes John Coltrane’s “A Love Supreme” as the spark that ignited his love for straight ahead jazz. The jazz roots in Dwan Bosman’s family go back to his grandfather Lloyd Smith who performed with Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, and Earl “Father” Hines. This tradition of jazz performance continues through to his father Dwight Bosman of the legendary Bosman Twins.

The family legacy of amazing musicians lives on in Dwan as he displays the results of his hands-on training in classical and jazz improvisational techniques under the tutelage of these great men of jazz. Dwan Bosman and his band with some help from his younger sister Morgan Bosman on vocals laid down some original jazz and R&B that was truly a treat to hear. Dwan Bosman is a showman on stage with a talent for moving the crowd with his high energy performance. A mix of straight ahead jazz, funk and R&B with influences from the 40s until now is what to expect at a Dwan Bosman show.
