An All-Star Tribute benefit for Neighborhood Studios
at the Bijou Theatre downtown Bridgeport!
Greg Wall brings together a talented and accomplished group of local and regional musicians to pay tribute to the great Art Blakey.
Leading the group is the Jazz Rabbi, Greg Wall, a celebrated musician and recording artist whose innovative downtown blend of jazz and world music has filled the halls of top venues from Carnegie Hall to stages throughout North America, Europe, and Israel.
Art Blakey's legacy as leader of the Jazz Messengers endured over 5 decades. The Messengers was one of the seminal groups in the second half of the 20th century. Many Messenger alumni went on to become jazz stars in their own right, such as: Lee Morgan, Benny Golson, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard, Chuck Mangione, Keith Jarrett, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Terence Blanchard among many others.
