The Grant Stewart Quartet
Friday, June 7, 2019
Renowned international jazz saxophonist GRANT STEWART headlines our series on FRIDAY, June 7th. His veteran quartet includes noted jazz guitarist & vocalist ILYA LUSHTAK, bassist RUSlAN KHAINE and drummer PHILLIP STEWART.
Canadian native Stewart's distinguished 25 year professional resume contains a host of worldwide performances with jazz elites at top clubs, colleges and festivals. Vocalists Etta Jones and Jon Hendricks are among them, as are horn players Clark Terry, Al Grey and drummer Jimmy Cobb. His credits also include being one of the first jazz artists to perform at the historic Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
"Downbeat" and "Jazzman" magazines named Stewart one of the jazz world's premier saxophonists, with a sound reminiscent of Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins. Remaining in high demand as a performer, Stewart also continues growing his list of CDs as a leader by frequently recording.
