11 - 8:30 PM
Kenny Garrett decidedly remains one of the best tooters in contemporary jazz! He feels as much at home with the most complex forms of hard bop as he does with the smoothest jazz, and is capable of being wonderfully exuberant and profoundly spiritual. Garrett delivers music that is never nostalgic, jazz in perpetual progression, just as his peers always taught him. His peers? Miles Davis for one (Kenny was the last person to play by the side of this legendary trumpeter), who vouched for him by declaring that he had never been so impressed by a saxophonist since Coltrane.
After having been taken under the wing of the latest jazz greats (besides Miles, he was mentored by Art Blakey and Freddie Hubbard), he himself is now the one passing on the torch. But he doesn’t content himself with simply spending his time managing this prestigious heritage: with his recordings «Seeds from the underground» (2012), «Pushing the world away» (2013) and “Do Your Dance!” (2016), he has confirmed his remarkable talent as a composer, yet without ever turning his back on the popular music of his period, feeling just as comfortable in the context of funk and rhythm‘n’blues as he does with pop. This jazz great will take your breath away and he is now more than ever an artist in his prime.
Kenny Garrett (sax), Vernell Brown (Pno), Eric Wheeler (B), Rudy Bird (Perc), Mark Whitfield Jr (Dm).
