Tim Armacost, Gary Smulyan, John Patitucci & Al Foster @ Jazz Forum This Weekend!
After a life of travel and discovery on three continents, Grammy-nominated saxophonist Tim Armacost has established himself as one of the most important improvisers on the New York scene today. Armacost has worked with a phenomenal number of Jazz greats, including Al Foster, Jimmy Cobb, Kenny Barron, Tom Harrell, Billy Hart, Victor Lewis, Jeff "Tain" Watts, Peter Erskine, Ray Drummond, Roy Hargrove, Don Friedman and Randy Brecker.
Gary Smulyan is critically acclaimed across-the-board and recognized as the major voice on the baritone saxophone. He is a six-time Grammy award winner for his work with B.B. King, Joe Lovano, Dave Holland and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.
Acoustic bassist John Patitucci has performed throughout the world and as a studio musician with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Dizzy Gillespie, Stan Getz, Pat Metheny, Wynton Marsalis, Astrud and Joao Gilberto, Joao Bosco, and Dori Caymmi. Since 1985, his many recordings with Chick Corea, Aeos Elektric Band and Akoustic Band, his six solo recordings for GRP Records, and his subsequent recordings have put him at the forefront of the Jazz world and brought him worldwide acclaim, as well as three Grammy Awards and over 20 Grammy nominations.
Al Foster, master drummer, has been a major innovator in the world of Jazz for several decades. As a member of the Miles Davis band for thirteen years, Foster's contribution to Davis' music is articulated by Davis himself in his 1989 autobiography, Miles: The Autobiography, where Davis describes the first time he heard Foster play live in 1972 at the Cellar Club on 95th Street in Manhattan: 'He [Foster] knocked me out because he had such a groove and he would just lay it right in there. That was the kind of thing I was looking for. AI could set it up for everybody else to play off and just keep the groove going forever."
