Gary Bartz - Jazz/Takes
DateTuesday 10. August
PriceDKK 375 (+ fee DKK 10).
Join us on this exciting musical journey through jazz takes on songs by the icons of New York’s 1990s Hip Hop movement, many of whom became known for their extensive and pioneering sampling of jazz records: A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Notorious BIG, Wu Tang Clan, Nas and Jay-Z.
The concert will be headlined by one of the jazz world’s greatest living legends of the alto saxophone, Gary Bartz – who is also among the numerous jazz artists whose albums have been sampled by Hip Hop artists and producers.
Aside from his famed 1970s collaboration with Miles Davis at the Isle Of Wight festival and on albums such as Live-Evil, Bartz has worked with Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln, Eric Dolphy, Pharoah Sanders and Charles Mingus and has been a member of Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers and of McCoy Tyner’s band Expansions. The multiple iterations of the Miles Davis band that Bartz was a part of also included peers such as Keith Jarrett, Jack DeJohnette, Dave Holland, Chick Corea and Airto Moreira.
Since then, Bartz formed his own band Ntu Troop, which combined jazz, funk, and soul. In 2015 the BNY Mellon Jazz Living Legacy Award was presented to him at a special ceremony at The Kennedy Center in the US.
For tonight’s concert, the NLD IJC musicians joining alto saxophonist Gary Bartz (US) will be drummer Anders Mogensen (DK), bassist Kasper Tagel (DK) and pianist Calle Brickman (SE).
