If Miles Davis, Clifford Brown and Lee Morgan were in town, do you know who they’d go see? – Steve Kenny. Steve K. is the Twin City’s jazz trumpet neuromancer - teasing the shadows, making offerings, and inviting the spirits to live through his horn. Ever generous letting the jazz lineage find a voice, Steve represents everything a jazz improviser aspires to – powerful, inventive, angular, harmonic, blissful, serene - nothing he plays is wasted listening. Any jazz horn player who’s heard Steve knows - this is what it sounds like. Glad I got to re-charge and reconnect with a local source. With Tommy Bentz, Jason McLean and Alex Burgess. Check out the Steve Kenny Quartet and Saturday Night Jazz at the BlackDog.
