Eric Revis Quartet at Kuumbwa Jazz Center
Thu, October 30, 2014
When you’ve been accompanying Branford Marsalis on bass for the better part of twenty years, you’re bound to become adept at facilitating a collective vision, but as a bandleader Eric Revis branches out with an improvisational touch and thematically broad compositions. His music is akin to his bass tone: deep, rich and woody with a flawless execution, no doubt honed by those many years with Marsalis and others, such as Kurt Rosenwinkel and McCoy Tyner. Revis’ playing is personal and distinctive while his skills as a band leader and composer are equally profound and inspiring. Rounding out his quartet are Darius Jones – alto saxophone; Bill McHenry – tenor saxophone and Ted Poor– drums.
