Prepare to be amazed as Frost School’s HMI Jazz Septet performs a high-energy concert of new originals with Jeff “Tain” Watts, one of the most in-demand jazz drummers in the world. Electrifying interplay emerges, inspired by Watts’s artistic ingenuity, explosive power, gritty street funk, and mastery of complex rhythms. A six-time Grammy winner, Watts has toured and recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Kenny Garrett, Danilo Pérez, Kenny Kirkland, Geri Allen, and others. He performed in television and film as a musician on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and as an actor in the role of Rhythm Jones in Spike Lee’s Mo’ Better Blues.
