KENNY GARRETT - SOUNDS FROM THE ANCESTORS [CD]
Cat. no: MAC1180
Release Date: 27th August 2021
Composer/saxophonist Kenny Garrett emerged as a distinctive voice on the national scene in 1978 with an undisputed aptitude for emotive melodic phrasing that led him to collaborations with Woody Shaw, Freddie Hubbard, Art Blakey and Miles Davis.
With ‘Sounds from the Ancestors’, Garrett remembers the spirit of the sounds of African ancestors from church services, recited prayers, songs from the work fields, Yoruban chants and African drums, alongside tributes to Roy Hargrove and two drum pioneers - Art Blakey and Tony Allen - who all looked into the past to influence the future sound and evolution of jazz.
'… eloquent and unfailingly hip alto and soprano saxophonist is a proper superstar.' - Evening Standard
