The opening concert of the Buenos Aires Jazz.12 will feature the quintet led by one of today’s most distinguished jazz trumpeters and composers: Tom Harrell. It will be on Wednesday 21 at 8.30 p.m. at the magnificent concert hall of the Usina del Arte, when this instrumentalist – who has a particular style said to combine the strength Clifford Brown with the lyricism of Chet Baker – will play for the first time in Buenos Aires. Along with excellent musicians such as Wayne Escoffery (tenor sax), Danny Grissett (piano), Ugonna Okegwo (double bass) and Jonathan Blake (drums), Harrell will perform material from his brand new Number 5, the fifth release in five years with this band, also identified by the number 5. Tickets for this exquisite concert are on sale on this website, or can be purchased in person at Casa de la Cultura, Av. de Mayo 575 (from Mon to Fri, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.) and at Hard Rock Café, Av. Pueyrredón and Av. Libertador (from Mon to Fri, 10 a.m.-8 p.m., and Saturdays, noon-6 p.m.).
