Vancouver Jazz Festival presents Jazz at Pyatt Hall
Vincent Herring Quartet
One of the world’s foremost voices on alto saxophone, the ebullient, hard-swinging Vincent Herring earned his spot in the jazz pantheon playing alongside legends such as Dizzy Gillespie, Art Blakey, and Freddie Hubbard. With a full-bodied sound and soulful, fluid phrasing, Herring “fuses instrumental mastery with equal and unified parts of jazz’s holy trinity of heart, mind and soul” (WNPR). From sensual ballads, to earthy, gospel-tinged blues and no-holds-barred post-bop barnburners—the Vincent Herring Quartet delivers the goods on all levels! His new quartet of top-shelf New York jazz players features pianist David Kikoski, bassist Yasushi Nakamara, and Carl Allen drums.
