Tom Amend

Money Jungle Double Drummer Series | Wednesdays

Oct 2, 2017

It's September of 1962 and three great band leaders: Charles Mingus, Max Roach and Duke Ellington gathered in the studio to embark on a musical adventure and make their mark on the quickly developing post-bop modern jazz movement. The results are an intriguing mesh of voices - a tense conversation between instruments, sometimes bordering on argument, all the while showcasing the brilliance of each individual musician.

Conceived by drummer Brian Claxton and pianist Tom Amend this artist in residency series is inspired by the iconic mainstream jazz album Trio+1 recorded in 1964 by Oscar Peterson Trio and Clark Terry. The line-up throughout this eight-week series includes appearances by: Gabriel Mervine, Josh D. Reed,  Dan Miller, Greg Gisbert, Erik Applegate, Seth Lewis, Eric, Hitt and Paul Romaine.
