I'm really excited to make my debut at the newly remodeled Jazz at the Bistro. I had the pleasure of playing there once before in '08 with the Legendary Willie Akins. (RIP)
The arrangements of these tunes are super hip and kiss on all of my favorite flavors of the jazz vernacular. You know the music, but I promise you've never heard it like this before. Think Roy Hargrove's RH Factor meets, Fela Kuti, meets Art Blakey's The Jazz Messengers.
Lamar Harris-Trombone/Trumpet, Sandy Roll-Trumpet, Charlie Cerpa-Sax, Duane Williams-Percussion, Grover Stewart-Drums, Ben Wheeler-Bass, Justin "Mr." Barksdale-Hammond B3 and myself on their lovely grand piano and keyboards.
