Chambers will be jointed on this engagement by one of the most versatile percussionist on the scene today, Steve Berrios, capable of handling both jazz and latin idioms; veteran Vincent Harding who has performed with Cedar Walton, Nat Adderly, the Three Altos, Gil Evans Orchestra and many more; piano stylist George Cables, and bassist Essiet Essiet.
The program for this engagement promises to be as varied as his latest CD, The Outlaw, with re-harmonized standards and jazz chestnuts; samba, Afro-Cuban grooves and straight ahead jazz.
Joe Chambers ranks as one of the most notable drummers and percussionist of his generation, and staple of the venerable (and once independent) Blue Note Label. As a member of the 60′s fraternity that recorded some of Blue Notes finest music, he can lay claim to a place alongside such innovative artist as the late Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Bobby Hutcherson, and Herbie Hancock. His intense drumming graced many landmark albums including: Hubbard’s Breaking Point; Shorter’s Schizophrenia, The All Seeing Eye, Adam’s Apple, and Et Cetera; Tyner’s Tender Moments, and Chick Corea’s Tones for Joan’s Bones.
The eclectic approach is telling on his latest release, The Outlaw (Savant Label) in which he presents original material and new arrangements of a handful of covers; including Ellington’s “In a Sentimental Mood” played on vibraphone and Horace Silver’s “Outlaw” played on marimba.
