With Joe Saylor, Bryan Carter, drums; Jerry Weldon, tenor sax; Matt Jodrell, trumpet; Neil Caine, bass; Chris Pattishall, piano
Bryan Carter and Joe Saylor, both leading players in Dizzy’s Late Night Session, join forces to present Drum Fest!, a tribute to great jazz drummers like Elvin Jones, Art Blakey, and Philly Joe Jones. The Bryan Carter-Joe Saylor Jazz Band, also featuring Jerry Weldon, Matt Jodrell, Neil Caine, and Chris Pattishall, will bring the energy and freewheeling spirit of a Late Night Session to the club, right from the start of the evening. Anyone with a penchant for jazz drumming—or, more generally, hard swinging, straight-ahead jazz—would do well to catch this one-night-only celebration of jazz’s legacy of drum masters, led by two of the most promising up-and-comers on the scene.
