Drummer Joe Farnsworth leads an exciting trio with the bassist Gerald Cannon and the innovative ELEW on piano and keyboards. Farnsworth has been heard frequently in groups led by George Coleman, Pharoah Sanders, Benny Golson, Cedar Walton, McCoy Tyner, Wynton Marsalis, and many others. The New York Times states, “Joe Farnsworth is a briskly swinging drummer, especially persuasive with the dialect of hard-bop.” The Daily Telegraph (UK) adds, “Drummer Joe Farnsworth was especially impressive, conjuring a whole battery of cross-rhythms and yet always being a rock-steady support.” ELEW, who won the Monk Competition in 1999 as Eric Lewis, has achieved great success with a genre he calls Rockjazz and a legion of fans including Barack and Michelle Obama.
