Rock Solomon’s Jazz-Noir multimedia concert is the apex of Jazz-Age Retrospectacular, an out-of-the-box event series looking at Key West history & culture through the lens of the Jazz Age. Solomon and his company, Mixdeity Entertainmen t, combine narrative, music and technology to weave a story of 1930’s Key West, when rum runners were rampant, the economy went bust, and a hurricane like no other nearly sealed the island’s fate. As discovered in lost journals of an unknown jazz singer, this Key West story emerges in music, multimedia & Jazz-Noir styled digital projection.
After being introduced to big band music by his father a Jazz Hall-of-Fame inductee, Rock Solomon studied music directly from his father, gaining a unique perspective and intimate understanding of the jazz big-band genre. As a band leader, musician & vocalist, he gained the rare ability to preserve the musical integrity of the Great American Songbook, while simultaneously bringing refreshing interpretations of the music to new audiences. Now Solomon carries the torch of his legendary family out of its long shadow, emerging as a young crooner with an old soul & unique authenticity in a musical family tradition that is timeless.
