Time Out NY Critics' Pick: Tom Harrell's "Jazz Meets Classical: Debussy and Ravel" + Ron Carter Trio

Tom Harrell's "Jazz Meets Classical: Debussy and Ravel" + Ron Carter Trio Critics' Pick

Blue Note Jazz Festival. Tom Harrell may be one of the greatest trumpeters alive, which you'd expect from someone who’s held his own in trumpet battles with Freddie Hubbard and the late Lee Morgan. Harrell's latest record, The Time of the Sun, features groovy, ambitious postbop, but tonight he's surveying the classics. Also on the bill is the legendary bassist Ron Carter, piloting his sparkling trio with soulful pianist Mulgrew Miller and burning guitarist Russell Malone.
