Jazz quintet's spiritual side to shine in church concert


The First Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ellicott City will present the fourth performance in its Artist Series Concert Season with the Barry Sames Jazz Quintet at 3 p.m. Sunday.

Sames began his career while at Temple University in Philadelphia and has played at venues in South America, the Caribbean, Europe and Japan.

He co-founded the five-piece band INSYNK, and brought his music into a church setting when he began composing and arranging jazz vespers in 1990.

The Barry Sames Jazz Quintet plays a mixture of Latin-flavored, ethno-fusion improvisatory jazz and sacred music. The group released its first compact disc, Awaiting the Spirit, in 1998.

Tickets to the concert are $15; $5 for children to age 17. They may be purchased in advance or at the door. The church is at 3604 Chatham Road in Ellicott City.

The worship space is wheelchair accessible. Large-print hymnals and worship bulletins are available, as is sound enhancement for the hearing impaired.

Information: 410-465-2977.
