January 14
Brian Haas, Annie Ellicott and Mark Southerland

5:00 p.m.

The Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame welcomes famed jazz pianist Brian Haas, star vocalist Annie Ellicott and Mark Southerland horn player extraordinaire to the Jazz Depot stage in concert.

A progressive-leaning pianist who straddles the line between jazz, experimental, classical music, and rock, Brian Haas is best known for founding the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Born in Tulsa in 1974, Haas was a gifted pianist in his youth who earned a full scholarship to the University of Tulsa for classical music, eventually switching to a full-time jazz study.

Annie Ellicott is an interdisciplinary artist working to expand her role as a singer/songwriter through video production, stagecraft, and performance art. Annie has toured the United States as well as Europe, performing both traditional jazz and original compositions.

Mark Southerland, Brian Haas’s one time Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey peer, is a horn guru and a serial music experimentalist. He founded and performs in a jazz group called We Snuff. Like the epic performer Moondog (Louis Thomas Hardin) and the less well known Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Southerland often plays several instruments simultaneously and wildly, invents new horns as well. In a recent TV interview he proclaimed a preference for “bastard horns”.
