The Uptown Tea Series presents Will Calhoun's Native Lands Trio
Sunday Sept 25 at the Dwyer Cultural Center, Harlem
Will Calhoun has toured or worked with musical royalty such as Wayne Shorter, Bobby Watson, Jaco Pastorius, BB King, Mos Def, Mick Jagger, Jack Dejohnette, the Allman Brothers, Herb Alpert, Salif Keita, Oumou Sangare, and many other artists around the world. With LIVING COLOUR, Will is a two-time Grammy Winner, selling over seven million records. He has also been voted most innovative drummer many times by Modern Drummer and Rolling Stone magazines. Will's latest creation, Native Lands (Half Note Records) can be described as Jazz meets World, coupled with trance-inducing urban music. This dual disc (CD/DVD) combines Calhoun's experiences as he marries his far-reaching interests in a genre-bending collection that taps key expressionists from various backgrounds. Among those contributing are Pharoah Sanders, Mos Def, Buster Williams, Stanley Jordan, Kevin Eubanks, Marcus Miller and Wallace Roney, as well as world-renowned Brazilian percussionist Naná Vasconcelos and Malian music master Cheick Tidiane Seck.
