Drum and Trumpet

About This Concert:

The Atrium Jazz Ensemble reveals how these ancient sounds have been brought up to the minute with music from Stephen Foster to Clifford Brown and beyond.

  • Jeremy Walker, piano and artistic director
  • John Raymond, trumpet
  • Kevin Washington, drums
  • Chris Thomson, saxophone
  • Jeff Bailey, bass

Fun Facts:

  • Drums and horns are ancient and universal. Fundamental sounds of celebration and dance, a call to action and a reverie. In jazz, they can whisper and shout, cajole and soothe.
  • Kevin Washington is a master musician and has been featured in Modern Drummer Magazine. His dedication to drumming began as soon as he could hold the sticks.
  • For this concert, John Raymond returns from New York to his Twin Cities home. His music is renowned as "electrifyingly new and strangely familiar at the same time with his mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned feeling." —Downbeat Magazine
  • Of this series, Pioneer Press notes "Orchestra Hall's Target Atrium is the Twin Cities' answer to New York's Dizzy's Club Coca Cola in Lincoln Center—a smaller, more intimate venue where listeners can enjoy concert hall-quality jazz."
