On his website, Jeremy Dutton describes himself as a “man, musician, and writer.” This thoughtful self-awareness is a key part of his artistry as a drummer—Dutton is always able to support the direction of the music, regardless of idiom.
This Thursday, May 4th, Dutton returns to The Jazz Gallery stage to present music from a new project, “Things Done Changed.” During his years in New York, Dutton has experienced a city in flux—an increasing division between rich and poor, gentrification morphing neighborhoods block by block, a skyline that grows while the surrounding waters encroach. Alongside his talented band of trumpeter Marquis Hill, pianist James Francies, and bassist Harish Raghavan, Dutton will reflect on his experiences in the city through a series of original compositions, at turns ebullient and introspective. Before coming to the Gallery, you can check out the ebb and flow of his composition “Waves,” below.
Jeremy Dutton presents “Things Done Changed” at The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, May 4th, 2017. The group features Mr. Dutton on drums, Marquis Hill on trumpet, James Francies on piano, and Harish Raghavan on bass. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
