Vincent Herring, alto saxophone player from New York, is another American star of the Szczecin Jazz festival. A proposition for those who want to taste classic jazz from the East Coast, painted with warm colours of the Manhattan.
Vincent Herring began his musical career in the early 1980s, giving concerts in the United States and Europe with the Lionel Hampton band. Over the years, he has worked with many jazz stars, while developing his own distinctive style. He has an impressive record of 20 original albums and over 200 co-ops.
This year's Szczecin Jazz Festival will be a real „bomb”. And the word I use here is not accidental. In the musical slang of New York, one can hear that bands that perform music with great vigor and commitment, do not play concerts but they "bomb" the audience, Sylwester Ostrowski explains. Three "bombings" will be provided to us by American jazz stars, who are regarded as continuators of the most noble variety of the genre. Bobby Watson continues the style of Charlie Parker, Wallace Roney Miles Davis and Vincent Herring, whose concert we are announcing – the style of Cannonball Adderley. These are the three most "stylistically clean" artists playing the so-called American jazz.
The concert of Vincent Herring with the accompaniment of the Soul Chemistry band will take place on March 4 at 20.00 in the S-1 Studio on ul. Niedziałkowskiego. Tickets for PLN 40 can be purchased at www.bilety.fm
