  • Description
On October 25th, 2001, jazz greats Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker, and Roy Hargrove walked onto the stage of Toronto's historic Massey Hall. These three stellar musicians, representing nearly three generations of jazz history, were there to pay tribute to Miles Davis and John Coltrane--who both would have turned 75 years old that year. The result was a concert of epic proportions, followed by accolades and awards (including the 2003 Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Jazz Album) for its subsequent live recording.
Their 2005 follow-up program, Directions in Music: Our Times, the group’s first reunion, will focus and explore the themes of contemporary composers who have helped influence the progression of jazz after Davis and Coltrane. Utilizing the ideology of a diverse range of contemporary composers such as Wayne Shorter, Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea, Jaco Pastorius, Stevie Wonder and the late Ray Charles, Directions In Music: Our Times promises to be a natural evolution from the distinctive musical minds of three of the strongest living voices in jazz today. Joining Hancock, Brecker, and Hargrove in their only Oregon appearance will be the explosive rhythm section of Scott Colley (bass) and Terri Lyne Carrington (drums).
