Considered to be the cornerstone of the Hard Bop genre and the training grounds for many of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers paved the way for the music of modern jazz. On March 6th at ArtHouse in College Park, Hart Guonjian-Pettit and his ensemble of fellow musicians pay homage to Art Blakey and his legendary band through a performance of selections from the group's standard repertoire. The group will perform compositions by Cedar Walton, Freddie Hubbard, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk among others.
