‘Jazz Tracks at Union Station’ Returns to Landmark – NBC Los Angeles


A station, with its undercurrent of anticipation, its fabulous flow, its stops, starts and go-arounds, and all its forward momentum, can sound like music.

What if an amazing structure has stories to tell, lots of character, remarkable architecture, and a special place in a city’s history?

These are more important notes in the composition of the building.

Union StationThe company’s own considerable composition has been playing for almost 83 years, giving travelers an inner rhythm to move around, with flair, fun and style.

But sometimes, if we are particularly lucky? The musical flair we associate with street icon Alameda turns into hours of shimmering sound.

Fortunately, this happens on Sunday, April 24, when the free-to-enjoy “Jazz Tracks at Union Station” returns to the landmark, courtesy of Metro Art Presents and KJAZZ.

Several exciting works are to come during the multi-hour festival. Bobby Bradford and his friends will perform the famous trumpet piece “Stealin’ Home – A Jackie Robinson Suite”, commissioned by the Baseball Reliquary in 2018, during the 4:30 p.m. performance.

Look for Mr. Bradford and a crowd of cheering musicians on the station’s south patio for the final concert of the day.

The De Leon Division begins the afternoon event at 2 p.m., also on the South Patio, while other shows will appear in the Waiting Room and North Patio.

Sam Gendel, Blake Mills and Benny Bock are also on the programme, singer Maiya Sykes will join the joyous event and the day’s hosts are KJAZZ DJs José Rizo and Rhonda Hamilton.

Latin jazz, heart-pounding drums, vibrant vocals, music full of memory and meaning, and a world-famous venue full of its own flows: “Jazz Tracks at Union Station” is a sweet sonic fantasy made for a sunny Sunday afternoon.

You won’t need to reserve your spot, but this is a first-come, first-served event, so arrive early if you want to catch any or all of the performances.
