Randy Weston piano – Billy Harper Otis Taylor Blues Band


A line-up of master storytellers. The pianist and composer Randy Weston is a jazz legend. His great loves are Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, and Africa - and it shows in his earthy approach. Like two modern griots (African storytellers), Weston and the saxophonist Billy Harper tell us about The Roots of the Blues. After the interval, there is an opportunity to discover the magical world of the guitarist, singer, and writer Otis Taylor, troubadour of the 21st-century blues.
