The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation presents the 2024 Jazz & Heritage Concert Series celebrating contemporary jazz at the George and Joyce Wein Jazz & Heritage Center! The series kicks off on Friday, January 5 at 8pm CT with a performance from Gladney.

A 6th-generation native of the Lower 9th Ward, he has performed and traveled professionally since the age of 12. A wealth of experience paired with an infectious spirit is what makes Gladney a must-see performer.

He’s been seen on the Kelly & Ryan Show, Live with Seth Myers, & BBC's Graham Norton Show. He’s also had the distinct honor of performing at the White House during the Obama administration. Along with European and US tours with the Jake Shears band, Gladney has performed internationally with a range of artists including Jon Batiste, Ellis Marsalis, George Duke, Branford Marsalis, Solange, and Topsy Chapman. He appears on Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah's 2018 GRAMMY-nominated album The Emancipation Procrastination on Gladney's feature track 'Cages.'

Gladney currently leads a self-titled band with the 2021 release of Selenite marking the band's recording debut.
