Jazz Tributaries meet Art Blakey ft. Rodney Green

Jazzhus Montmartre , København K


No advance tickets

2019 is the year the drummer-icon Art Blakey would have turned a hundred years old. We celebrate the birthday by ”re-imagining” some of his biggest Jazz Messenger projects, including new, original lyrics and arrangements. These will celebrate, not only Art Blakey, but also those around him such as Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan, Bobby Timmons, Curtis Fuller, Freddie Hubbard and more. The music will be presented by an international All-Star constellation, consisting of Jesper Riis on trumpet, Karl-Martin Almqvist playing the tenor sax, Søren Møller on piano and Kristin Korb playing the bass and singing. But who is taking over the drums, you might think? The group has gotten no other than Rodney Green to join them on this tour – a world famous drummer who bursted the jazz scene at the age of 19 years old, when he was asked to be a part of Diana Krall’s band. These concerts will be grand!
