South Florida JAZZ presents Steve Turre Sextet: "The Bones of Art: A Tribute to Art Blakey"
(Published: June 01, 2016)

On June 11 at 8 pm, Steve Turre brings an unusual 3-trombone sextet to the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center, 3100 Ray Ferrero Blvd, Davie. Tickets are $40; students under 25: $10 with valid ID at southfloridajazz.org or (954) 462-0222.

One of the world's preëminent jazz innovators, trombonist and conch shellist Steve Turre, has repeatedly won JazzTimes, Down Beat, and Jazziz magazines' polls for Best Trombone and for Best Miscellaneous Instrumentalist (shells). During his long and productive musical career, he has worked mainly with groups usually featuring trumpet, reed instruments and rhythm. For some time he has had a desire to work with a three-trombone frontline sextet, more focused than his larger Sanctified Shells ensemble. Most jazz fans recall the Kai Winding-J.J. Johnson two and four trombone bands from the 1950s and ‘60s, but Steve has heard a unique three-trombone sound in his mind and recruited two more Jazz Messenger alumni trombonists, Steve Davis and Kuumba Frank Lacy, for this special project.

The Bones of Art, of course, is Steve's homage to Art Blakey, the indomitable hard-bop drummer, who launched a multitude of great careers via his Jazz Messengers band. No musician has ever been the same after a stint with Blakey.

Steve's name for the band has a conscious connection to the rich jazz history. He says, "'Bones of Art' means we are artists of the trombone, but we all graduated from Art's school, and out of it we became not just instrumentalists, but composers, arrangers, and stylists." Steve has learned his "Art" lessons well and communicates directly to his listeners through his sound and humanity.
