New York jazz drummer on stage and in Lismore
NEW York drummer Joe Farnsworth has teamed up with Australian heavyweight Dale Barlow for the Prime Time Quartet East Coast tour.
Regarded as one of the top jazz drummers in the world, Farnsworth is dedicated to the great tradition of jazz drumming conceived by artists like Max Roach, Roy Haynes, Elvin Jones, Billy Higgins and Arthur Taylor.
Frequently called upon to "light a fire" under their bands, Joe has appeared on more than 70 albums and shared the stage with illustrious musicians including Wynton Marsalis, Cedar Walton, Kurt Elling and Diana Krall.
For this tour, Joe's sensitive hard bop style is perfectly matched against titan tenor saxophonist Dale Barlow. National Jazz Award winner and bassist Brendan Clarke and Chicago-born pianist John Harkins complete the line-up.
At the Tatts Hotel, Keen St, Lismore, this Sunday from 2pm. $20
