In America, a jazz giant like trombonist/composer Julian Priester must periodically rely on benefit shows to help him deal with high medical bills common to people in their 80s. It’s a disgraceful situation, but thankfully, Priester—best known for his stellar work in the 1970s with Herbie Hancock’s paradigm-shifting Mwandishi group and for his 1974 fusion classic Love, Love—has talented friends willing to step up and play their challenging jazz-fusion compositions to raise much-needed funds. Bandalabra Trio (Industrial Revelation’s Evan Flory-Barnes and D’Vonne Lewis, plus saxophonist Skerik) and Priester’s own ensemble, Cue, will elevate your night, for an important cause.
