The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitiriou's Jazz Alley welcomes alto saxophonist Kenny Garret for two nights. Band members are TBA. Show times Tuesday and Wednesday at 7:30pm. Doors open at 6:00pm each night.
Over the course of a stellar career that has spanned more than 30 years, saxophonist Kenny Garrett has become the preeminent alto saxophonist of his generation. From his first gig with the Duke Ellington Orchestra (led by Mercer Ellington) through his time spent with musicians such as Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers and Miles Davis, Garrett has always brought a vigorous yet melodic, and truly distinctive, alto saxophone sound to each musical situation. As a bandleader for the last two decades, he has also continually grown as a composer.
