With pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Gerald Cannon, drummer Joe Farnsworth, and tenor saxophonist Abraham Burton.
Joe Farnsworth is regarded as one of the top jazz drummers in the world, but as far as he is concerned, he is just getting started. Farnsworth is dedicated to the great tradition of jazz drumming as conceived by artists like Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Billy Higgins, and Arthur Taylor, with whom he studied. A true jazz mainstay, Farnsworth has left his indelible mark on more than 70 albums with such diverse musicians as Wynton Marsalis, Cedar Walton, McCoy Tyner, Pharoah Sanders, Horace Silver, Diana Krall, and Benny Golson. Tonight’s performance features Farnsworth’s regular group of elite musicians, a prestigious band including Harold Mabern, Gerald Cannon, and Eric Alexander.
