Combsy & Henna Roso: ACM@UCO Metro Music Series & Horton Records Showcase!
Chris Combs, guitarist, composer and member of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, offers his debut, self-titled solo album, “Combsy.” “Combsy” is a lush, groove-heavy album, deftly sourcing jazz, hip-hop, electronic and rock genres with sonic landscapes that appeal to festy heads, jazz junkies and music lovers of all types.
With a stellar lineup of Tulsa and NOLA musicians, a rich layer of rhythms and horns provide the platform and space for Combs to spread out and explore his nuanced guitar work.
Although far from careful, “Combsy” comes to the ear as curated and intentional and with a healthy sense of both the history and future of instrumental music.
Joining Combsy is Henna Roso, a band dedicated to fighting hunger in America. Blending elements of jazz, funk, and soul Henna Roso creates a unique sonic landscape rich in melody and feel.
The event showcases Oklahoma musicians and Horton Records, based in Tulsa and founded by its namesake, Brian Horton. Horton Records is a nonprofit, volunteer-sustained music organization providing everything from band management to creating, sustaining and promoting local music and Oklahoma’s musical heritage.
ACM@UCO’s Metro Music Series is sponsored by Oklahoma Gazette, Exchange Music, KOSU Radio, ArtWorks, the National Endowment for the Arts and the Oklahoma Arts Council.
