The Essentials Vol. 5: Contemporary Jazz Yellowjackets
Throughout their storied 35-year history, the Yellowjackets have recorded 23 albums, received 17 Grammy nominations – won two – performed countless sold-out tours, and enjoyed worldwide critical acclaim and commercial success. Over the years the band has undergone numerous lineup changes, but has maintained an extraordinarily high quality of musicianship that is the rival of many but a surprise to no one who knows and appreciates the band and its music. The Yellowjackets’ newest album, Coherence, was released in April 2016. Don’t miss this latest installment of the Center’s jazz series, The Essentials.
“…a perfectly combustible electric-acoustic outfit whose smart and unpredictable compositions draw from fusion, post-bop and contemporary jazz.” —JazzTimes
