Celebrating the Slide Hampton Octet

October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Celebrate the music of Slide Hampton at Birdland on October 30th at 7pm!

Celebrating the Slide Hampton Octet aims to honor and preserve the vast musical legacy of the great trombonist/composer/arranger/conductor Slide Hampton. The band performs repertoire from Hampton’s powerhouse octet of the late ’50s-early ’60s. Thanks to Slide’s magnificent orchestrations, 8 musicians often sound like a full big band of 16. The band’s 2019 recording “Slide’s Blues” (SmallsLive Records) features Slide himself as a guest soloist on two selections.

Sam Dillon – tenor saxophone

Frank Basile – baritone saxophone

Nick Marchione – trumpet

Bruce Harris – trumpet

James Burton III – trombone

Rob Edwards – trombone

Mike Karn – bass

SPECIAL GUEST: Kenny Washington – drums
