Rory Ingham brings together an all-star sextet to celebrate the music of legendary drummer Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, but with the lesser-known sextet formation as exemplified by the stellar 1960s front-line of Freddie HubbardCurtis Fuller and Wayne Shorter plus the powerhouse of pianist Cedar Walton, bassist Reggie Workman and Art Blakey. This project demonstrates hard bop with a frighteningly fresh feel; the music is wildly high-energy and unbelievably swinging. For this evening’s special concert at Eastside Jazz Club, this intensely engaging ensemble will be putting the spotlight on the music of Wayne Shorter, legendary US saxophonist and composer who sadly passed away in 2023. Ingham will be joined by some of the finest talent on the European jazz scene:
