Detroit native Robert Hurst III has enjoyed a stellar career spanning 30 years and become one of the most in-demand bassists in music, performing alongside the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Yo Yo Ma, Diana Krall, and countless others. “Hurst’s Black Current Jam features the bassist’ compelling compositions that distill an encyclopedia’s worth of African American music, including swinging post-bop, African and Caribbean influences, contemporary beats from hip hop, and more” (Mark Stryker).

 

Brooklyn-based and vibraphonist Joel Ross and recently awarded Rising Star Harpist in Downbeat Magazine’s 2020 Critics Poll Brandee Younger make their Paradise Jazz Series debut with a unique duo set.

This performance is only available as part of a 2021-2022 Jazz Series subscription package. Subscribe today at dso.org/jazz.
