Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola presents The Gerald Cannon Septet.
(Published: May 15, 2018)

May 25-27: Legendary bassist Gerald Cannon leads an outstanding array of musicians over three nights at Dizzy's. The club is located at Broadway and 60th St on the 5th floor; set times are 7:30 and 9:30 each night.

Gerald Cannon has been one of the most respected and formidable bassists of the past several decades. He's performed and toured with artists including Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Dexter Gordon, Roy Hargrove, Chuco Valdes, Wynton and Branford Marsalis, Abbey Lincoln, Cyrus Chestnut, and many more. With bandleaders across multiple generations, he's the go-to bassist; after his time in Roy Hargrove's band, Cannon held the bass chair for iconic drummer Elvin Jones until his passing in 2004, and he is now the music director and bassist for the McCoy Tyner Trio. Tonight he leads a powerhouse septet featuring an array of his regular cohorts and top contemporaries: saxophonists Steve Slagle (Friday only) and JLCO member Sherman Irby; trumpeter Jeremy Pelt; pianist Rick Germanson; drummer Willie Jones III; and guitarists Russell Malone (Friday only) and Paul Bollenback (Saturday and Sunday). This is a rock-solid group and an easy recommendation for any jazz fan in town.

Cover is $45 Friday & Saturday, $35 on Sunday, $25 for students. Reservations can be made online at jazz.org/dizzys, by phone at 212-258-9595, or in person at the club after 6 pm daily.
