Young and extremely talented Champian Fulton returns to her Oklahoma roots with the Champian Fulton Jazz Quartet at the Oklahoma City Community College’s (OCCC) Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC) Theater Tuesday, Apr. 12 at 7:30 p.m.
Fulton, born in Oklahoma and the daughter of jazz instrumentalist Stephen Fulton, has become a world class musician, influenced by jazz greats such as her father, Clark Terry and Major Holley. Since her first paid performance at age 10, Fulton has been known for her distinctive and sophisticated piano and voice skills.
Now labeled a mainstay on the New York jazz scene, Fulton has also established international fame while touring in Canada as well as European nations. The New York Times has described her as “a charming young steward of the mainstream jazz tradition.”
For the performance, Fulton will be joined by Stephen Fulton on the flugelhorn, Adi Meyerson on bass, and Ben Zweig on drums.
