Grammy award-winning saxophonist Jean Toussaint first came to prominence with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers in 1982.
Returning to Calstock Arts after a sell-out gig at the Calstock Jazz and Blues Festival, Jean’s new band features some of the most exciting young musicians on the UK scene.
Jean’s latest album Brother Raymond builds on the legacy of Blakey and confirms Toussaint’s place at the forefront of modern jazz.
Stand out tracks include Amabo, an African groove dedicated to Barack Obama. The title track, written for Toussaint’s eldest brother who passed away in 2015, draws upon the influences of Toussaint’s favourite composers, Duke Ellington and Wayne Shorter.
"Art was one of the most inspirational band leaders rated amongst the greatest. Names like Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis come to mind. They all had an inclusive way of band leading that made each member feel a part of the family,” explains Toussaint. “Through the music, Art encouraged us to strive and reach beyond ourselves and work as one to create musical excitement while never losing sight of the audience.”
The event ends about 10.25pm. Plenty of time to catch the train back to Plymouth. Calstock Arts is only a few minutes walk from Calstock Rail Station
