Description

Jean Toussaint, along with Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Eddie Henderson and more recently Wallace Rooney and Mulgrew Miller, was a member of one of the great editions of legendary drummer Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. This concert revisits some of the great music played by the group, and by other editions of the Messengers, as well as original pieces by Jean and features an International lineup of present day stellar jazz musicians who are here as part of the GMF Barcelona 19.

"Art was one of the most inspirational band leaders rated amongst some of the greatest. Names like Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis come to mind. They all had an inclusive way of band leading that made each member feel a part of the family. Through the music, Art encouraged us to strive and reach beyond ourselves and work as one to create excitement while never losing sight of the audience.

Art use to say "it doesn't matter how complex you want to play as long as you swing and play from the heart" then he'd cite the great John Coltrane as an example.

I owe it all to the great Art Blakey and I'll be a Jazz Messenger for life".

Jean Toussaint
