The Art of Elvin:
The group is a tribute to Art Blakey and Elvin Jones who were both personal and musical mentors of mine.The music is a collection of tunes that were performed by both Art Blakey and/or Elvin Jones as well as some original music. In the tradition of both Art and Elvin the music is hard bop, gospel infused, hard swinging music that is designed to make one feel good. It’s  high energy as well as toe tapping.
