Jazz at Lincoln Center
With steel pan player Victor Provost, pianist Alex Brown, bassist Zach Brown, and drummer Billy Williams. Steel pan player Victor Provist is a jaw-dropping talent from Washington D.C. The young virtuoso tours with luminaries like NEA Jazz Master Paquito D’Rivera and Dion Parsion, and he has received such accolades as Percussionist of the Year by the Washington City Paper – five years in a row. With a strong foundation in bebop and deep roots in Caribbean music, he primarily plays swinging jazz imbued with the unique sound and feel of a steel pan as a leading voice. His first and only album thus far was released in 2011, and tonight’s album release show celebrates his anticipated follow-up, Bright Eyes. Artist interview with WBGO host Rhonda Hamilton will begin at 7:15pm EST. WBGO is proud to partner once again with Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on Monday Nights with WBGO. The series features talented new artists as well as groups from some of the area's great college jazz programs. Each performance is hosted by WBGO announcer Rhonda Hamilton.
