Jermaine Lockhart

More from this show

Tenor saxophonist Jermaine Lockhart has played alongside many notable musicians, including Angie Bofill, Pieces of a Dream, Brian Auger, the Jazz Crusaders and Bob James – but here the stage is all his. He plays “Honey Dew” and “Sunday Doo Dah,” both produced by Greg Fears Jr. with melodies by Lockhart.

“I came to have a love of music from my parents,” Lockhart said. “My mom is a music teacher and my dad plays the organ – he’s the retired pastor of a church.” As a child, he started with drums and moved to saxophone from there, choosing the instrument in school because he saw the girls in his class were interested in it.

From his musical roots in the Pentecostal church, Lockhart has also added jazz, straight-ahead grooves, and rhythm and blues genres to his repertoire.

“What I love most about performing is the energy that I receive from the crowd,” he said.
