SPECIAL EVENT: The PREVAIL All-Star Sextet
September 7 @ 7:00 PM
TWO SHOWS: 7:00 & 9:15 PM
The PREVAIL All-Star Sextet:
Terell Stafford-trumpet | Wycliffe Gordon-trombone | Dick Oatts-sax | Bill Cunliffe-piano | John Clayton-bass | Lewis Nash-drums
Every year over Labor Day Weekend, these master jazz musicians come together in Vail, Colorado to conduct the prestigious Vail Jazz Workshop. This is the first time that the “PREVAIL” All-Star Sextet is following up its workshop with a performance, well, anywhere, Lucky us!
Lewis Nash named the group PREVAIL, not only because they’ve worked together extensively in a variety of configurations “pre-Vail”; but more importantly because its members personify the definition of “prevail”. Lewis says, “every performance with these musicians is a ‘triumph’, each has been a strong ‘influence’ on my life; and these musicians keep jazz ‘current and relevant’.”
Most importantly, PREVAIL sounds amazing with each musician bringing a wealth of jazz history, energy and personality to the bandstand.
