Rhode Island Music Masters Weekend - Duke Meets Scott: Scott Hamilton and Duke Robillard

This special meeting of two dear friends who grew up listening to Scott's father RISD painting professor Robert Hamilton's jazz record collections. Scott moved to New York City in the mid 1970's and became an instant hit with his rich, warm tones from his tenor sax playing. Duke started the legendary jump blues band with a powerhouse horn section called Roomful of Blues (47 years ago). This rare meeting of these 2 masters happen about once every decade ... not to be missed otherwise, you might have to wait another decade when all the stars are in line again.

Revive Big Band: Where Jazz Meets Hip- Hop

Monday, August 22, 2016 - 6:00pm

For trumpeter and composer Igmar Thomas, much in contemporary music is clearly evolved from improvised American music of eras past — jazz, in short. That insight led him to create the Revive Big Band, a large ensemble with a view to connecting the through-lines between hip-hop and its predecessors. Jazz Night In America presents the story behind the band and its homecoming show.
