LIVE FROM DIZZY'S CLUB COCA-COLA With Robin Eubanks and Frank Lacy, Trombone; Xavier Davis, Piano; Kenny Davis, Bass; Willie Jones III, Drums
Legendary trombone and conch shell master Steve Turre is bringing a brand new group to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in anticipation of their upcoming release on High Note. The Bones of Art (a name chosen by fans on Facebook) should answer any questions about the players’ credentials; the group features the last three trombonists in Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, all of whom have enjoyed monumental careers in jazz. The rhythm section is comprised of some of Dizzy’s finest regulars, all group leaders as well – Xavier Davis, Kenny Davis, and Willie Jones III. Comprised of three trombones and a rhythm section, this is not a typical jazz sextet, but these proven musicians deserve curiosity and excitement in equal parts for this brave venture.
