Jim Stevens’ soulful, unflinching saxophone sound takes cues from legendary saxophonists such as St. Louis’ own David Sanborn, making him the ideal choice to pay homage to one of the city’s greatest contributors to jazz. Through his own band, The Jim Stevens Group, and his work alongside The Four Tops, The Temptations, Ralph Butler, and Peter Mayer, Stevens has become one of St. Louis’ premier contemporary saxophonists.
Good 4 the Soul, an explosive four-piece outfit, led by John King on bass, with Adaron “Pops” Jackson on keys, James Jackson on drums, and Shaun Robinson on guitar, draws upon jazz, funk, fusion, gospel, and R&B repertoires to deliver a powerful and unapologetic sound that excites and thrills audiences. When this band hits the stage, there are no boundaries. The only guarantee is a night of world-class music that is Good 4 the Soul!
