A Jazz Greats Analysis Workshop with Greg Hutchinson
Time & Location
About the Event
Described by Jazz Magazine as “the drummer of his generation,” Gregory Hutchinson is truly one of the most highly respected musicians of our time. Mastery of timing and expression of rhythms are at the core of his personal style. While soundly rooted in the jazz tradition, he is known for approaching all styles of music with supreme accuracy and imagination, decorating compositions with his natural feel and mind-blowing innovation.
As a young phenom in the jazz community, Hutchinson shared stages with the likes of Red Rodney, Betty Carter, and Ray Brown. More recently, he continues to work with a virtual who’s who of the jazz world including Dianne Reeves, Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis, John Scofield, Roy Hargrove, Charles Lloyd, Diana Krall, Harry Connick Jr, Joshua Redman, Christian McBride and Maria Schneider among many other luminaries.
On this exclusive Drum Hangs workshop, Greg will give us a unique insight into the playing of legendary drumming forefathers such as Art Blakey, Tony Williams, Philly Joe Jones, and Elvin Jones.
Come and learn from a true master of our art.
Participants are encouraged to have a pair of sticks and a practice pad or kit to hand although it's also perfectly fine if you'd like to just watch and soak up all the information.
