Catch-up date found: The Flashback Concert #34 will take place on January 19, 2024!
It's FLASHBACK time again! You can expect a moving musical homage to one of the most talented trombonists of avant-garde and free jazz: Grachan Moncur.
His roots in the blues and bebop of J.J. Johnson shaped his unique musical vision. With albums such as "Evolution," "Some Other Stuff," and "New Africa" on Blue Note and BYG, he contributed significantly to the development of these genres in the 1960s.
Moncur's collaboration with jazz icons such as Lee Morgan, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Archie Shepp left an indelible mark on the jazz world. His creative work "Destination... Out!" with Jackie McLean in particular remains unforgotten. Despite his expressive trombone playing and his multi-layered compositions, Grachan Moncur III remained a rather underestimated artist. The Flashback concert is therefore a much-needed opportunity to celebrate his legacy and bring his music to a new generation of music lovers.
