Kerriem Riggins Staff Pick

When: Thu., Dec. 26, 10 p.m. 2019
Price: $5
We’re not complaining about this belated holiday gift in the form of a performance by one of Detroit’s most accomplished musicians, jazz drummer, producer, and Emmy Award winner Karriem Riggins. The son of keyboardist Emmanuel Riggins, Karriem has spent the last 20 years — and longer if you consider his childhood and academic career, which were dedicated to perfecting jazz trumpet, drums, and performing in multiple high school bands — collaborating with the likes of Erykah Badu, Herbie Hancock, the Roots, Talib Kweli, Esperanza Spalding, Paul McCartney, and Detroit’s late, great beatmaker J Dilla, whom he developed a close friendship and working relationship with after being reintroduced by friend and collaborator Common.
