JAZZ @ THE JACOBS/Freedom Rider: An Art Blakey Centennial Celebration
In a career that spanned the decades between the Big Band sounds of Billy Eckstine and the modern generation of neo-traditional jazz practitioners such as Wynton Marsalis, percussion master and band leader Art Blakey boldly blazed a trail of his own. For 35 years he led several incarnations of the Jazz Messengers through the glory years of bebop and beyond, incubating a dazzling lineup of young jazz talent along the way. Series Curator Gilbert Castellanos has assembled a stellar group of musicians, including some former Jazz Messengers, for this centennial tribute.
Brian Lynch, trumpet
Bobby Watson, alto saxophone
Bill Pierce, tenor saxophone
Donald Brown, piano
Carl Allen, drums
Peter Washington, bass
(JAZZ @ THE JACOBS and BAYSIDE SUMMER NIGHTS are both San Diego Symphony series curated by six-time San Diego Music Awards Best Jazz Artist & Artist of the Year Gilbert Castellanos.)
