Traverse City’s beloved Jeff Haas Quintet with jazz legend, Marcus Belgrave and acclaimed vocalist Joan Belgrave, perform a 100TH birthday tribute to Haas’s father, legendary radio host Karl Haas.  Jeff Haas is nationally known for his personal and engaging musical voice that combines jazz, Judaic and classical music. Legendary jazz pianist Dave Brubeck said, “In combining these great musical traditions, [Haas] has created a soulful music that transcends ethnic barriers.”


Experience an afternoon of jazz classics and new original compositions in celebration of the Karl Haas’s 100th birthday anniversary. The concert will feature the Traverse City premiere of a 30-minute documentary about Karl Haas, produced by Jeff and his sister Alyce. In addition, Jeff will perform on the fully restored HISTORIC 7-foot concert grand piano that Karl played at the WJR Studios and was recently gifted to Jeff by Jim Evola, of Evola Pianos, courtesy of WJR.
