On Friday, The Jazz Gallery will host a meeting of the minds between saxophonist Will Vinson, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Brewer, and drummer Marcus Gilmore.

All four artists have presented their own bands at The Gallery on multiple occasions in the past: Will and Matt have both been performing here since 2006, Aaron since 2002, and Marcus since 2005. Additionally, both Aaron and Marcus were commissioned as a part of The Jazz Gallery Composer’s Series in 2007. And, as we mentioned recently, Matt Brewer is currently completing a Leading From the Bass residency at The Gallery. We look forward to hearing these individuals unite in various combinations.

On the subject of the engagement, Will Vinson writes, “I can’t wait to play with three of the most incredible young musicians in New York. We’re going to be playing in duo, trio and quartet formations and taking the opportunity to explore orchestration ideas on some new, and some old, music.”

As Will notes, all four of these artists are among the most sought-after musicians in town, and space is limited. Reserve your tickets here.
