Grant Stewart Quartet
Wednesday, April 24, 2013
7:30pm | Dizzy's Club Coca Cola
With Tardo Hammer, piano; John Webber, bass; and Philip Stewart, drum
“Grant is one of the most innovative young musicians still carrying on the tradition of jazz…” – Lou Donaldson
“Grant is what we call in the trade a ‘sleeper.’ A fantastic player, but not too many people know about him – yet! Once they do hear him they say, ‘WHOA!’ – and that’s what I said when I did a recording with him.” – Clark Terry
“One of my favorite tenor players in the world!” – Jimmy Cobb
It would be difficult to give saxophonist Grant Stewart a more glowing endorsement than those already given by some of the top jazz musicians in the world. With pianist Tardo Hammer, bassist John Webber, and drummer Philip Stewart – all equally capable and experienced players in their own rights – the Grant Stewart Quartet will light up the Dizzy’s stage. This is straight-ahead 1950’s and 60’s inspired jazz, respectfully performed with a contemporary approach.
