With Michael Carvin, drums; Yayoi Ikawa, piano; Keith Loftis, tenor saxophone; and Jansen Cinco, bass
Michael Carvin returns to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola to celebrate the release of Flash Forward, his latest CD in a career spanning over 250 recordings. He has played with leading voices throughout the history of jazz and Motown, including artists like Freddie Hubbard, Dizzy Gillespie, and B.B. King. His great influence as a teacher has shaped the sound of today’s top drummers, with a few of his 300+ students including Kimberly Thompson, Allison Miller, E.J. Strickland, and Eric McPherson. A tireless mentor, Carvin is known for featuring bands with up-and-coming and culturally diverse musicians, and we can’t wait to hear this next piece of his illustrious career.
