Red House Live from Landmark Center - Dean Magraw & Eric Gravatt Concert
***Tickets will be available online until 3pm on 10/17/2014. After that time tickets will be available at the door for $20 each.***
The dynamic partnership forged between Dean Magaw and Eric Kamau Gravatt, was captured in the studio for a Red House Records jazz fusion album set to debut in early fall. The two virtuosos create soundscapes of rhythm, melody and dimension, with every performance a dazzling reminder of their incredible feel and talent. Saint Paul native, Magraw is a guitarist who has performed with some of music's most iconic players from Greg Brown to jazz legend Jack McDuff to the renowned Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Magraw's eclectic mix of musical influences can be heard in more than a dozen albums, including three for Red House Records. Whether he is performing solo, with one of his ensembles, or collaborating with world-class musicians, his seemingly endless positive energy radiates through the music and to those lucky enough to hear it. Gravatt is a master jazz drummer out of the fusion and post-bop traditions. Originally from Philadelphia, Gravatt has played with such illustrious players as McCoy Tyner and Joe Henderson, and was the drummer with the legendary band Weather Report. In the mid-1970s he moved to the Twin Cities and joined with the nationally acclaimed quartet, Natural Life, a band still etched in the memory of local jazz aficionados. Eventually, Gravatt withdrew from active performing, but has recently returned, most frequently with his band Source Code.
