Carl Allen Quintet

Sat, Apr 06
  • Presented By: GAM Foundation/Jazz SLC
  • at: Jeanne Wagner Theatre
  • 138 West 300 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
With over 200 recordings to his credit, the gifted Milwaukee-born, New York-based drummer, sideman, bandleader, entrepreneur, and educator, Carl Allen’s profound and propulsive percolations provided soulful and syncopated support for nearly three decades. The Art of Elvin, a tribute band dedicated to his two drum influences, Art Blakey and Elvin Jones, who were both personal and musical mentors of Allen’s. The music is a collection of tunes that were performed by both Art Blakey and Elvin Jones as well as some original music. In the tradition of both Art and Elvin the music is hard bop, gospel infused, hard swinging music that is designed to make one feel good. It will be a night of high energy as well as a little toe tapping.
