Jamey Aebersold Quartet performing at the Lexington Jazz Festival !
...We're at the fourth annual Lexington Jazz Festival held at Talon winery on rural Tates Creek Road in Fayette County Kentucky. Jamey and his group are the second of four bands performing here this afternoon. Jamey is from New Albany Indiana and is actively involved in jazz education as well as performing. Tyrone Wheeler , the bassist is a music faculty member at the University of Louisville. Jonathan Higgins is the most in demand drummer on the Louisville jazz scene and has been for many years. Didn't catch the name of the young pianist but Jamey announced him as being twenty two years old. He plays like a seasoned professional who has been performing for thirty years..... Uncanny !...... Jamey announced to the audience that the future of jazz was in very good hands with young folks of his caliber performing. If anyone views this and knows his name and background please post here and I will add it to the text.
