Tulsa Performing Arts Center presents “Arts in the Air,” a free performance series held on the Williams Green downtown. 8:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. An absolute musician, Dean’s roots are in jazz, blues, classical, rock and country and western. Growing up as the son of a jazz pianist in Tulsa, he learned the roots of jazz from performing in his father’s band in high school. His Tulsa “Jazz Tribe” trio was featured at Guthrie Green during the 2014 Summer Starlight Series. He also appeared as a guest soloist with the TU Jazz Ensemble for the Fall 2014 Concert and has presented “bass face” jazz concerts for the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame Sunday Jazz Concerts.
