About the Event
Six players from the Jazz825 collective recreate the power and excitement of the greatest hard-bop group of them all: Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Their particular focus is the live album that the band recorded at Birdland in 1963, soon after their return from a lengthy tour of Japan. Today's band fetures the youthful talent of Ted Porter on trumpet, alongside the vastly experienced and creative Zak Barrett (saxophone), Dave Jago (trombone), Tony Gooderham (piano), Geof Harris (bass) and Trevor Taylor (drums).
