The Max Weinberg Quintet epitomizes the synergy of jazz instrumentalists bringing their best instincts and improvisations to the stage.
Rock And Roll Hall Of Famer Weinberg, most widely known for his nearly 44 year association with Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band and as the band leader of the shining Max Weinberg Seven on NBC’s Late Night and Tonight Show broadcasts, brings his power, dynamism, versatility, and chops to all of his various musical aggregations—his Quintet is no exception as Weinberg has traveled the U.S. and Europe with these fine musicians drawing rave reviews.
Delving deeply into the classic mid-60’s world of hard bop, as exemplified by such iconic musicians as Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Thelonious Monk, Chet Baker, Horace Silver, and others of the genre, the Max Weinberg Quintet is comprised of David Kikoski, himself the leader of the Grammy Award winning Charles Mingus Big Band and a revered pianist who established his reputation early in his career for his work with drumming legend Roy Haynes. Dave has also worked with Chick Corea, Michael and Randy Brecker, Al Foster, and film composer, Christian McBride. Saxophonist Brandon Wright maintains an incredibly active session career on the east and west coasts, has been a mainstay of the Doc Severinsen Orchestra, and has worked with Max Weinberg in varying capacities including his Quintet, his 23 piece society dance band, and the occasional appearance with Max and Bruce Springsteen. Cameron Brown is one of jazz’s great bassists having worked for many years with Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers, the famous Don Pullen/George Adams Quartet (with drummer Dannie Richmond). Trumpeter John Bailey is known as one of the most electrifying trumpeters in New York City. From stints with Buddy Rich, Ray Barretto, and Latin jazz innovator Arturo O’ Farrill with whom he won two Grammys, John’s a high note man who’s subtlety only enforces his power.
But, Synergy is what it’s all about—the musical conversation these players establish from the very first downbeat. Commanding soloists all they’ll have your audiences on their feet with their renditions of energetic hard bop classics.
