Aberdeen Jazz Festival: Ralph Alessi

“Unstoppably inventive” said The New York Times about cutting edge trumpeter, Alessi. If you want to hear where jazz is now in the creative cauldron of New York - “Baida” are playing the hippest club in town, The Village Vanguard as we write, and releasing their new album “Quiver” on state of the art record label, ECM – this is a band that features four of the most revered contemporary jazz musicians in New York: Alessi (trumpet), Gary Versace (piano), Drew Gress (bass), and Nasheet Waits (drums). They’re brilliant players taking jazz to new places, courtesy of Alessi’s music: “as clean and airy and sophisticated and disciplined as post-modern progressive jazz gets” (Jazz Times).
