Arkansas Time Rock Candy Blog Shines Light on the Birthday Celebration
Check out this great article from the Arkansas Times Rock Candy Blog:
Aug. 3 would have been Little Rock-born jazz musician Art Porter Jr.'s 50th birthday. The saxophonist died in a boating accident in Thailand in 1996, not long after performing at a festival celebrating the reign of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
To commemorate Porter's life and work,Art Porter Music Education Inc., a nonprofit that provides scholarships to budding musicians, will present a week's worth of music and events to celebrate the virtuoso musician's life, which was cut far too short.
