Two of today’s hardest swinging drummers, Joe Farnsworth and Kenny Washington, renew the tradition of “drum battles” made famous by Jazz at the Philharmonic and at the Newport Festival among others.  The obvious chemistry and camaraderie between these two masters always guarantee a great night of music. Farnsworth has worked with George Coleman, Pharoah Sanders, McCoy Tyner, Harold Mabern and Eric Alexander, among many others while Kenny Washington, aka the Jazz Maniac, is one of the most respected drummers of the last 40 years has worked with Lee Konitz, Betty Carter, Johnny Griffin, Dizzy Gillespie, Clark Terry, and Tommy Flanagan among many others and is often heard recently as part of the popular Bill Charlap Trio. Joining them for this edition are trumpeter Brian Lynch, baritone saxophonist Gary Smulyan, pianist Mike LeDonne and bassist Clovis Nicolas.
