Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour
Patti Austin, vocals; Terence Blanchard, trumpet; Ravi Coltrane, saxophone; Gerald Clayton, piano; Joe Sanders, bass; Justin Brown, drums
The revered Monterey Jazz Festival compiles an all-star lineup of its best and brightest for a dazzling program that romps through jazz past, present, and future. Grammy-winning R&B and jazz vocalist Patti Austin has most recently lent the "gorgeous, gutsy power" (JazzTimes) of her voice to the repertoire of Ella Fitzgerald and songs by the Gershwins. And festival veterans New Orleans trumpeter Terence Blanchard and saxophonist Ravi Coltrane join forces with the next-generation rhythm section of pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Joe Sanders, and Berkeley High alum Justin Brown on drums, who have both passed through Monterey's prestigious education program and gone on to stellar careers.
