Will Calhoun Celebrates Elvin Jones at Blues Alley
(Published: September 21, 2017)


September 22-23, shows at 8 and 10 PM: Not many artists have the vision and artistic energy to be two-time Grammy winners and contribute to so many genres: jazz, rock, hip-hop, ambient, et al, while concurrently producing, touring, creating new projects, working on films, and continually pushing the envelope. Will Calhoun has this creative vision, and he is doing an extraordinary job keeping music a spiritual and motivating force in his life. Although he's best known as the hard-driving, groove-oriented drummer for the pioneering rock group Living Colour, Will Calhoun has played in a staggering variety of styles and traditions over the course of his eclectic career. Straight-ahead jazz, fusion, traditional African percussion, funk, hip-hop, and of course hard rock - Calhoun has explored them all, and he traces the roots of all of them to one man: legendary drummer Elvin Jones. This 21st century celebration of the great jazz legend Elvin Jones is filled with passion and heart. Iconic drummer Will Calhoun joins forces with Elvin Jones' musical associates Christian McBride, Carlos McKinney, Antoine Roney and Jan Hammer on this Motéma Music recording.

"Celebrating Elvin Jones is an inspired project, vibrant and emotionally honest, but its greatest success may be that it brings Calhoun's boundless energy to lesser-known gems of the Jones songbook." - DownBeat

Joining Will at Blues Alley will be Gerald Cannon (bass), Antoine Roney (sax), and Daniel Vega (piano.) Tickets are $37.75 (+$5 fee) at bluesalleylive.com. The club is located at 1073 Wisconsin Ave NW; phone (202) 337-4141. Music courtesy of KCC Productions.
