Mark Guiliana's Jazz Quartet

Mar 27-31

Tickets

Mark Guiliana has become recognized as one of the world’s leading drummers, admired and in demand across the spectrum from jazz to rock to electronic music for his rhythmic sophistication, creative impulse, and individual sound. He has been in the vanguard of drummers creating a new vernacular on the instrument, blending virtuosity on acoustic drums with artfully deployed electronic beats and processing. Guiliana’s newest album as a leader – Jersey, released in September 2017 via Motema Music – features his ever-compelling Jazz Quartet. Describing the Jazz Quartet’s concept, Guiliana says: “Many of my releases as a leader have been driven by electronic-inspired beats and textures, but with Family First and now Jersey, it felt like the right time to present my music in an entirely acoustic environment. So the Jazz Quartet is my humble attempt to make a personal statement using the traditional palette of saxophone, piano, bass and drums. For the band, this lineup presents the challenge: How creative can we be inside this box – how much freedom and experimentation can we find? And I have to say that it’s always so exciting to hear the guys play this music in ways I never could have imagined.”


"Mark Guiliana, a technical master with a rare sense of musicality, has over the last decade become one of the most influential drummers of his generation."

"Guiliana may well be at the forefront of an exciting new style of drumming…"

"Mark Guiliana’s astonishing, tentacular drumming alone confirms that Bowie’s last band, led by saxophonist Donny McCaslin, was one of his best, capable of anything."

Jazz saxophonist, Benny Golson, is one of the last remaining legends of the music. Of the 57 jazz musicians pictured in the iconic “A Great Day in Harlem” photograph, he is one of only two still living and at age 90, his playing is as fresh as ever. In this special event, Dr. Gerald Early interviews saxophone legend Benny Golson about his nearly 8-decade career, followed by a performance from the man that brought you jazz standards like Killer Joe, Whisper Not, and I Remember Clifford.
