Three Should Be Enough

Let’s finish off our jazz festival updates for the week.  I’m still very excited about all of these shows coming to Saskatoon.

ROY HARGROVE: Is a fantastic trumpet player. Discovered by Herbie Hancock for an all Texas jazz band when he was still in high school, and never stopping since then.  He has true jazz combos and his hip-hop infused RH factor. All around an amazing trumpet player. He plays June 27.

LOS LOBOS: An L.A. based group that mixes styles (from blues & rockabilly to latin) with political themes. They’ve played the jazz fest here a few times and have always put on a great show. They play the 27th as well


p.s. So many great bands.

Let’s Keep It Up

Yesterday I posted some great blues bands that are playing at the jazz festival.  Here are a couple of other bands that will be there as well.

THE ROOTS: Are one of hip-hops super groups.  Bringing fresh sounds through a live band rather than djs or producers you can catch them on Jimmy Fallon where they are currently the house band. They play June 26 and I’ll be there.

CHICK COREA: You may have noticed that I like Herbie Hancock. If you share that love with me then you’ll like Chick Corea.  A great piano player who has written many notable jazz tunes and he played with Miles Davis in the 70s. He plays June 26th.


p.s. go outside.
