Master drummer Michael Carvin has been a valued participant in the New York creative music scene since 1973, when he joined Freddie Hubbard’s band. Over the succeeding four decades, Michael worked with leaders ranging from Dexter Gordon and Ruth Brown to Pharoah Sanders and Alice Coltrane. He’s appeared on over 250 albums and is among the nation’s most respected drum teachers. Any band with Michael Carvin in the drum seat is guaranteed to swing – and this one, with fellow Texan/saxophonist Keith Loftis aboard, will be no exception! “Michael Carvin is no ordinary drummer,” declared Jon Hendricks, “he is a human rhythm machine.” Branford Marsalis calls Michael Carvin “a true jazz stalwart who has taught many of the major jazz drummers who have emerged in the past fifteen years.”

All seating is on a first come, first seated basis. Ticket purchase guarantees you admission to the show. Serving award winning Blue Smoke Barbecue.

    The Michael Carvin Experience

    Jazz

    Michael Carvin began learning drums on his father’s knee (literally) and was playing professionally by the age of 12. A severely truncated version of this master musician’s résumé would include two years as a Motown Records staff player; recording and roadwork with Freddie Hubbard’s first touring band; and important contributions to groups led by Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, Johnny Hartman, Hank Jones, Abbey Lincoln, Jackie McLean, Jimmy Smith, and McCoy Tyner, just to name a few. Carvin’s latest album as a leader, Flash Forward (2014, Motema Music) features the fiery quartet he’ll bring to our stage, playing songs that range from an explosive “A Night In Tunisia” to such unfairly neglected gems as Horace Silver’s “Sayonara Blues” and Bobby Hutcherson’s “Same Shame.”
