CANCELED – Messenger Collective at Jimmy’s

Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club
135 Congress St
Portsmouth, NH 03801

NOTE: This event has been canceled.

The Messenger Collective is an elite line-up of alumni members of one of Jazz most influential bands, Art Blakey Jazz Messengers, and carrying forth the legacy of Ralph Peterson. This group of musicians wishes to preserve, protect and honor the legacy of Peterson who was much more than a bandleader to all of them. This group has the potential of launching renewed appreciation for one of the most important institutions of apprenticeship in American music history. In an age when cover bands and tribute acts are commonplace and contrived, this proves to be the exception. Having multiple generations of Messengers represented in this band is the closest you can get to the source. This is the real deal. The current configuration is multi Grammy winning trumpeter Brian Lynch, former Tonight Show drummer Marvin Smitty Smith, Essiet Essiet, Criag Handy, Bill Pierce, and in the spirit of mentorship, rising pianists Zaccai Curtis.
