      Kenny Barron-Dave Holland Trio

      14th ANNUAL NEW MEXICO JAZZ FESTIVAL
      Sponsored by La Cumbre Brewing Co. with additional support from Nicholas Potter Bookseller Each year, the New Mexico Jazz Festival features an NEA Jazz Master, and this year, it's TWO Jazz Masters-legendary pianist Kenny Barron and bassist Dave Holland, who have enjoyed an ongoing musical partnership for the past several years. In 2014, they released an acclaimed recording, entitled The Art Of Conversation. Tonight, they expand the duo format with the addition of drummer Nasheet Waits. Kenny Barron has spent five decades at the forefront of jazz piano aristocracy. Called "one of the foremost exponents of the modern mainstream" (The Independent), he is a multiple-Grammy nominee who was inducted into the American Jazz Hall of Fame in 2005. A member of Dizzy Gillespie's quintet from 1962-1966, Barron also played with Chet Baker, Ron Carter, Stan Getz, Joe Henderson, and many others. He launched his solo career in 1973 and has since recorded over forty albums as a leader. He also co-founded the highly acclaimed collective, Sphere, which celebrated the music of Thelonious Monk. Named an NEA Jazz Master in 2017, British-born bassist and composer Dave Holland is constantly evolving - reinventing his concept and approach while honing his instantly identifiable voice. From the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew-era band to his flamenco inspired collaboration with Spanish guitar legend Pepe Habichuela; from accompanying the great Betty Carter to forging a new sound with the pioneering avant-garde quartet Circle with Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton, and Barry Altschul; from his work with legends like Stan Getz, Hank Jones, Roy Haynes, and Sam Rivers to providing early opportunities to now-leading players such as Chris Potter, Kevin and Robin Eubanks, and Steve Coleman, Holland remains at the forefront of jazz. Heralded for his musicality and creativity by such virtuosi as Ed Thigpen, Max Roach, Andrew Hill, and Stanley Cowell, drummer Nasheet Waits, the son of the renowned percussionist Freddie Waits, first came to prominence as a member of Roach's famed percussion ensemble M'BOOM, after which he became a standing member of reedman Antonio Hart's various ensembles. As an originating member of Moran's Bandwagon, he was, along with bassist Tarus Mateen, deemed, "the most exciting rhythm section in jazz" by JazzTimes. $25-$65 (no Member Passes).
