In case you missed it, seven-string guru Ted Ludwig is curating a new jazz series at what may very well be the best listening room in town — The Joint in historic downtown Argenta. David Gilmore’s widely considered a risk-taker and a chameleon in the jazz world, ever at the service of the song, whether he’s trading licks with Wayne Shorter (Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers, Weather Report) or backing revered contraltos like Cassandra Wilson or Mavis Staples. Gilmore’s solo work mingles musical philosophies, just as likely to base a rhythm on an Indian raga as on the Pythagorean theorem.
So when your search engine brings up a list of Pink Floyd tunes and asks you “Did you mean David Gilmour?” give it a “No, I did not, thankyouverymuch,” and dig into this Massachusetts native’s motley catalog. Tickets are available at jazzatthejoint.org.
