After much-acclaim and sold-out performances, Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative’s (JAI) monthly series—The Jazz Room @ The Stage Door Theater – is swinging through the summer on August 18 & 19, with renowned tenor saxophonist Phillip Whack paying tribute to jazz icon John Coltrane. The Stage Door Theater is part of Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, at the corner of 5th and College in Uptown Charlotte.

Phillip Whack is a native of Columbia, SC.  He was classically trained on the saxophone, and continued his studies at Brevard College in Brevard , NC.
