Kirk Lightsey New Latin Jazz Quintet feat. Clemens Salesny


Kirk Lightsey: piano
Clemens Salesny: alto saxophone, clarinet
Paul Zauner: trombone
Darryl Hall: bass
Christian Salfellner: drums

Der Trompeter und Perkussionist Jerry Gonzales hätte diese Band leiten sollen, sagte aber kurzfristig aus nicht näher genannten Gründen ab. An seiner statt übernimmt der Meisterpianist Kirk Lightsey diese Position und engagiert Clemens Salesny für den Bläsersatz. Motto & Musik bleibt gleich! Capitan Kirk, bitte übernehmen...

Kirk Lightsey’s profound pianisms originate from the Motor City. Kirk LIGHTSEY was born into Detroit 's rich music scene on February 15, 1937. He grew up in a town known for its jazz pianists, which included Hugh Lawson, Sir Roland Hanna, Barry Harris, Hank Jones and Tommy Flanigan, whose brother gave Lightsey his first piano lessons at the age of six. He then took lessons with Glady's Wade Dillard, who also taught pianists Barry Harris, Alice McCloud and Tommy Flanagan.
