CD Release of Eli Yamin's "Louie's Dream: For Our Jazz Heroes
New York jazz and blues expert Eli Yamin has one foot in the past and one in the future with both his traditional jazz group and his new release "Louie's Dream: For Our Jazz Heroes," a new duo collaboration with New Orleans-based clarinetist Evan Christopher.
From jazz clubs to concert halls and even the White House, the intuitive and playful spark this duo brings to the bandstand is always marked with passion and dynamic interplay. Both Yamin and Christopher share a deep commitment to celebrating the enduring legacy and relevance of the greats who inspire them. Yet, even though aural glimpses of their heroes are evident in their styles, their dedication to their own personal voices is abundant.
With Evan Christopher, clarinet; Nicki Parrott, bass; LaFrae Sci, drums
