    The best music from in and around Detroit in 2016

    May 26, Sean Blackman's 'In Transit' @ The Garden Theater

    In 2010 Detroit guitarist, Sean Blackman staged  In Transit , a multi-cultural blending of international musicians, ethnic dancers, and Detroit jazz masters to a sold out audience at Orchestra Hall. That concert reunited the collaborators featured on Blackman's  In Transit  (Complex Records, 2009), and established a format that continues today as  In Transit Detroit , a monthly concert series at the Garden Theater. Each  In Transit Detroit  arrives at a different musical destination, and the May 26 edition,  A Night in Paris , is my favorite concert of 2016.
