Greatly talented and prolific Jazz Musician, Saxophonist, Composer, Educator, Mustafa on Sax a.k.a. Melton Mustafa, Jr. graced the stage of the Eissey Campus Theater at Palm Beach State in Palm Beach Gardens, FL Monday night on July 18, 2016 along in a special performance for The National Association of Negro Musicians’ 97th Annual National Convention preceding Grammy Award Winner Lalah Hathaway. In the band playing alongside Mustafa were Allen C. Paul (Piano), Doug Carter (Organ), Shaka Pace (Bass) and James Cotman (Drums).
The energy brought to the stage from Mustafa on Sax sent shock waves through the crowd, as the audience danced and sang along to familiar melodies and charismatic sounds. During his performance, Mustafa played a classical piece given to him by his father, Trumpeter, Melton Mustafa, Sr. during his earlier years at FAMU. Again the crowd was left in awe.
Mustafa reminds you that music is an art. His sounds are like pigmented paint on a canvas creating an image that brings you to another dimension. Whether he is covering a popular song or playing his own original composition, his signature style is vivid. I am truly convinced, that Mustafa on Sax is a legend in the making.
