"We are thrilled to have one of the greatest Jazz Fusion Bands of all-time coming to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club..."
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (PRWEB) May 10, 2022
Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club Features 2x-GRAMMY® Award-Winning & 17x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Jazz Fusion Band YELLOWJACKETS on Thursday June 2 at 7:30 P.M. Yellowjackets have recorded 25 albums, performed countless sold-out tours, and enjoyed worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success.
- "Thirty-nine years in and still dropping cracking grooves and catchy melodies...they’ve retained an instantly recognizable sound: knotty drum grooves, brain-glued melodies, clever harmonies, and extended, rip-roaring solos," states JAZZ TIMES.
- “They've become one of the most innovative electro-acoustic jazz ensembles... ‘Jackets XL’ offers not only a seamless, sophisticated, kaleidoscopic jazz collaboration, it also reveals Yellowjackets' musical evolution through taste, variety, imagination, and genuine surprise. Enjoy," raves ALL ABOUT JAZZ (Recent 'Jackets XL' album review).
Never failing to rise to the inevitable challenges of adjustment, the Yellowjackets - Russell Ferrante (Keyboards), William Kennedy (Drums), Bob Mintzer (Saxophone) - have maintained an extraordinarily high quality of musicianship that is the rival of many, but a surprise to no one who knows and appreciates the band and their music.
The most recent addition to the band adds Australian Bass Player Dane Alderson into the mix. With his exceptional rhythmic sensibility and natural disposition toward groove, Dane brings a new energy to the band and adds a youthful approach to the music.
"We are thrilled to have one of the greatest Jazz Fusion Bands of all-time coming to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club on Thursday June 2," said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club. "Yellowjackets fans in attendance will definitely appreciate our new state-of-the-art production, sound and lighting technologies once the show begins!"
