We are delighted to welcome back iconic pianist Kirk Lightsey, celebrating his 80th birthday, but playing with as much joy, energy and beauty as ever. He renews a partnership with Jean Toussaint, who, ever since his time as a Jazz Messenger with Art Blakey, has matched Kirk in attitude and approach.
One of the last of the great Detroit-born musicians, a heritage that included Hank Jones and Tommy Flanagan, he brings the quality and style of the Village Vanguard to the Vortex.
The rest of the band is Paul Zauner (trombone), Steve Watts (bass), Dave Wickens (drums)
