With Kenny Rampton, trumpet; Bill Sims, vocals/guitar; Sherman Irby, alto saxophone; Donny McCaslin, tenor/soprano saxophone; Elliot Mason, trombone; Brian Charette, organ; Dan Stein, acoustic bass; and Tony Mason, drums
Trumpeter extraordinaire Kenny Rampton, known in part as a member of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and Mingus Big Band, leads an all-star octet for one night only at Dizzy’s. The group includes legendary blues guitarist and vocalist Bill Sims, fellow JLCO members Sherman Irby and Elliot Mason, saxophonist Donny McCaslin, and an inspired rhythm section of Brian Charette, Dan Stein, and Tony Mason. Expect to witness virtuosic musicianship channeled through a fusion of jazz, blues, and funk. This unique and still unrecorded octet features some of the best living soloists in jazz and should not be missed.
