Earshot Jazz presents Grammy Award-winning drummer and composer Brian Blade who brings to the stage his eagerly anticipated new project, Life Cycles—a tribute to the late vibraphonist and jazz legend Bobby Hutcherson. Easily one of the most charismatic and soulful musicians in jazz, Blade’s musical roots go back to the Southern Baptist church in Shreveport, Louisiana, where his father has been the pastor for 52 years.
Blade brings that energy to Life Cycles along with a host of other talented musicians: Myron Walden on woodwinds; John Hart on guitar; Jon Cowherd on piano; Doug Weiss on bass; Monte Croft on vibraphone and vocals; and Rogerio Boccato on percussion. Sit in for a spellbinding performance by an artist who JazzTimes calls “one of the finest drummers of his generation—at the top of the list.”
