Angel City Jazz Festival @ REDCAT with Henry Grimes, Lost & Found
Henry Grimes was an A-list jazz bassist in the '50s and '60s who worked with everyone from Benny Goodman to Albert Ayler. Then he disappeared. For almost 33 years he lived the life of a day laborer in Los Angeles. This is Henry's first major performance in L.A. since his re-emergence onto the jazz scene in 2005. Henry's friends performing this evening include trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith, woodwind player Vinny Golia, pianist Ben Rosenbloom and drummer-percussionist Alex Cline. Expect some special guests.
Opening for Henry Grimes, Dwight Trible and John Beasley will explore the outer reaches of musical invention. Dwight Trible is a singer who has collaborated with Pharoah Sanders, Charles Lloyd, Billy Childs and Horace Tapscott. Pianist John Beasley is a prodigious performer and composer who has worked with Miles Davis, Steely Dan, Freddie Hubbard, Bennie Maupin, Christian McBride and James Brown.
Presented in conjunction with REDCAT & CalArts.
