Notice: St. Louis City officials recommend that residents follow CDC guidance for COVID-19 safety.

Join Jazz St. Louis as we salute the iconic and hugely influential master drummer Art Blakey. Blakey’s Jazz Messengers quickly became the “University of Hard Bop,” ushering the best young musicians into the jazz world, armed with a heavy dose of swing. Spearheaded by East St. Louis’s own Montez Coleman (drums), this all-star group includes Ben Reece (saxophone), Danny Campbell (trumpet), Bob DeBoo (bass), and Adaron “Pops” Jackson (piano).
