We kick off the season on September 12 and 13, 2020, with the ART BLAKEY CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION. Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers maintains its position as not only one of the most influential ensembles but Blakey himself apprenticed some of the most important musicians in the field today. This sextet of high-ranking alumni, led by saxophonist Bobby Watson, with Brian Lynch, Bill Pierce, Essiet Essiet, Zaccai Curtis, and Carl Allen, is taking the legendary drummer’s message to the world during his centennial year.
