Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola

Hugh Masekela & Larry Willis: FRIENDS

With Hugh Masekela, trumpet, and Larry Willis, piano

Hugh Masekela and Larry Willis, two giants of the jazz world, come together for this show. Masekela is a world-renowned flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader, composer, singer, and defiant political voice. After coming under the tutelage of Dizzy Gillespie and Louis Armstrong, Masekela went on to carve out a five-decade-long (and counting) career, releasing over 40 solo albums. His 1986 anti-apartheid anthem “Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela)” became a rallying call around the world for Mandela’s release from prison.  A pianist, Willis met Masekela when they were both students at the Manhattan School of Music some 50 years ago. Since then, Willis has performed or recorded with almost every great jazz musician of the modern era, including Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Morgan, Woody Shaw, Cannonball and Nat Adderley, and Stan Getz. Don’t miss this rare chance to watch the two jazz legends (and dear friends) light up Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola.
