Arizona trumpeter-turned-pianist Zack Gillespie and his quartet celebrate contemporary Blue Note Jazz artists with arrangements of music by the likes of Norah Jones, Ambrose Akinmusire, Aaron Parks, Brian Blade, Terence Blanchard, and Robert Glasper.
Though Blue Note Records is celebrating its 80th birthday and is known universally for its iconic catalog of hard bop and mainstream jazz artists, Blue Note has always been a reliable source for forward-thinking listeners.
