Percussionist Darryl “Munyungo” Jackson and violinist Karen Briggs both are blessed with a rare musical intangible — the ability to add much more to almost any musical performance than merely another instrument. Jackson’s lengthy career includes a stint with Herbie Hancock’s reformed Headhunters, which toured the world a decade ago, as well as tours or recordings with Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Sting and many more. Karen Briggs’ wide-ranging career has included appearances with Diana Ross, Yanni, Stanley Clarke and Wu-Tang Clan, while also touring and recording as a leader of her own groups. Tonight Jackson and Briggs pair in leading a group at H.O.M.E. (House of Music & Entertainment) in Beverly Hills, for an evening almost certain to exceed expectations
