E.J. Strickland Quintet live at Jazz en Tête Jazz en Tête 2017


Drummer E.J. Strickland's rise to the top took place alongside jazz legends such as Ravi Coltrane, Cassandra Wilson, Terence Blanchard and Wynton Marsalis. Now a respected bandleader in his own right, Strickland is the gravitational point of a group of talented musicians, who surround him on stage in this high-flying concert.

Here the E.J. Strickland Quintet, his signature ensemble, take the stage of the Jazz en Tête festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France for a dazzling program rich in technical ease and cohesion, with: twin brother Marcus Strickland on tenor and soprano saxophones, Taber Gable on piano, Louis Godwin on alto saxophone, and Josh Ginsburg on double-bass.
