Glen David Andrews with Twogether

Star performer Glen David Andrews’ wild jazz-funk-blues meets two young prodigies from the European soul scene.

Dates: 22.6 – 1.7.2017

Glen David Andrews

Born in 1979 and raised in the New Orleans Treme (probably one of the oldest black communities in the United States), Glen David Andrews took his first steps in marching bands, alongside his brother Derrick Tabb and his cousins Trombone Shorty, James Andrews, and Trumpet Black Hill.  An artist who embodies all of the vitality of jazz, funk, and blues, Andrews once again caught the attention of audience and critics with his 2014 album “Redemption”, which received six nominations to the Best of the Beat Awards and marked his own personal and musical rebirth.  Singer and trombonist with an irrepressible exuberance, Glen David is back to grace us with his presence after shining as one of the stars of last year’s edition of JazzAscona. At his side, once again, Twogether, two young prodigies of European groovy jazz: Jerôme Cardynaals, drums, (with whom he’s already been on tour) and Hammond organ player Simon Oslender. Both twenty years old, they have already enjoyed the privilege of performing with names such as Dr Lonnie Smith, Nils Landgren, and Benny Golson. This year the band welcomes saxophonist Tony Barda.
