Mobile’s Roman Street is bringing its exotic acoustic sounds to The Steeple on St. Francis, which has emerged as one of the Azalea City’s most unique and inviting venues. Its beautiful surroundings are matched by its great acoustics, ideal for this kind of show.
Each Roman Street performance is a musical journey taking the mind across European landscapes. The group has used its carefree mix of flamenco, gypsy jazz and classic styles — one of the most refreshing on the Gulf Coast — to establish a worldwide audience. The latest addition to the band’s catalog is “Bohemia,” which also features the co-billed producer/multi-instrumentalist Vincent Ingala on the track “Mr. Morris.”
Since the release of his 2010 debut “North End Soul,” Ingala has become one the smooth jazz scene’s most notable musicians. He has been enjoying the success of his 2015 release “Coast to Coast,” filled with smooth grooves and sultry work on saxophone. “Coast to Coast” produced two singles that hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart.
