SUNDAY, MAY 30
THE NEW ORLEANS
114 First Avenue, Seattle
8:00pm, $10.00, All Ages
Reservations: (206) 622-2563

The New Orleans Creole Restaurant will play host to a living retrospective of the music of Art Blakey and his famed band The Jazz Messengers. The all-star band of local heavyweights features brothers Thomas & David Marriott on trumpet and trombone, Matt Jorgensen on drums, pianist Bill Anschell and bassist Phil Sparks. Beginning at 8:00 pm, the ensemble will play music from the Jazz Messengers’ 50-year history.

Drummer Art Blakey was at the forefront of the bebop movement of the 1940’s and ‘50’s in New York. The Jazz Messengers, first formed by Blakey in 1947, quickly became a proving ground for most of the major names in jazz in the last 50 years. Keith Jarrett, Wynton & Branford Marsalis, Horace Silver, Kevin Eubanks (of the Tonight Show), Kenny Garrett, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter and scores of other influential musicians were members of The Jazz Messengers at one time or another and gained from Blakey’s tutelage. Blakey, also known as Abdullah Ibn Buhaina after his conversion to Islam in the late 1940’s, recorded over 130 albums as a leader in his lengthy career as a bandleader and drummer.

This one-time event will take place on Sunday, May 30th at the New Orleans Creole Restaurant in Pioneer Square, an all ages venue featuring a full bar and authentic Creole cuisine. The music begins at 8:00 pm. Admission is $10.00 and reservations are strongly recommended as seating is limited. There will be a second seating on a first-come-first-served basis at 9:30 pm. For reservations, call (206) 622-2563.

The New Orleans is located at 114 First Avenue South.
