WEST ORANGE, NJ - On Sunday, Feb. 23, the West Orange African Heritage Organization (WOAHO) will present "An Afternoon of Jazz" at Hat City Kitchen, 459 Valley St., Orange, from 3 to 7 p.m.

The third annual program is part of the organization's series of Black History Month events and celebrates the legacy of jazz, featuring instrumental and vocal jazz performances.  

Featured performers will include West Orange resident and drummer Vincent Ector, who will be playing several songs from his highly acclaimed CD, “Organatomy.” Jazz Insider Magazine describes Ector's performance as “Crackling like an autumn bonfire…”   

Wilma Ann, featured jazz vocalist, will lend her own unique style of interpretation to jazz classics, and accomplished pianist and West Orange resident Isaiah Thompson will perform with his ensemble. 

There is no cover charge for the event and all are welcome.
