Energetic acoustic jazz by a supergroup led by American drum hero Nasheet Waits, a protégé of Max Roach and a core member of Jason Moran's Bandwagon.

Nasheet Waits followed in the footsteps of his father, legendary jazz drummer Freddie Waits. At the request of his other important mentor, Max Roach, he became part of the unique percussion ensemble M'BOOM, proving his extraordinary talent performing with star players such as Tony Williams and Ginger Baker. Later on he joined the Andrew Hill Quartet, co-founded The Bandwagon together with pianist Jason Moran and played in Charles Lloyd's quartet.

At the BIMHUIS the New York-raised drummer performed with his Equality Quartet. The recent album Between Nothingness and Infinity includes original compositions by the band leader Waits and double bassist Mark Helias alongside works by Charlie Parker, Andrew Hill and Sam Rivers. For his concert at the BIMHUIS, Nasheet brought bassist Eric Revis.

Personnel: Jason Yarde: saxophone; Abel Marcel Calderon: piano; Eric Revis: bass; Nasheet Waits: drums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
