Newly named an NEA Jazz Master in 2023, saxophonist Kenny Garrett is one of the most powerfully expressive, uplifting, and influential instrumentalists and bandleaders of our time. Kenny’s fiery quintet swings into Keystone Korner Baltimore for 3 nights, Friday-Sunday, July 19-21st to celebrate his latest release, Sounds From The Ancestors, which reflects the rich jazz, R&B, and gospel history of his hometown of Detroit and deeply resonates with the Afro-Caribbean rhythms of Cuba, Nigeria and Guadeloupe.

With his illustrious career that includes hallmark stints with Miles Davis, Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers, Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, as well as a heralded career as a solo artist that began more than 30 years ago, Kenny Garrett is easily recognized as one of modern jazz’s brightest and most influential living masters. And with the marvelous Sounds From The Ancestors, the GRAMMY® Award-winning Garrett shows no signs of resting on his laurels.

Kenny Garrett’s latest release, Sounds From The Ancestors, is a multi-faceted album. Similar to how Miles Davis’ seminal LP, On the Corner, subverted its main guiding lights – James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone – then crafted its own unique, polyrhythmic, groove-laden, improv-heavy universe, Sounds From The Ancestors occupies its own space with intellectual clarity, sonic ingenuity and emotional heft.
