Nominated by the Jazz Journalist Association as the Top Jazz Drummer" Internationally acclaimed Billy Hart is truly an artist of distinction! Marked by a crisp, driving beat contrasted by a looser, uncanny flexibility, the consummate jazz drummer and DC native- son has appeared on over 400 recordings, many pivotal, of such jazz icons as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter. With The Academy," Hart continues the great musical incubator concept of Blakely's Messenger's and other groups. The dynamic Hart will be joined for the group's inaugural performance by founding member Michael Bowie (Bass) and DC's own Allyn Johnson (Piano) and Antonio Parker (Sax) with Special Guest, Trumpeter and grandson of the late Trumpeter Doc Cheatham, Theo Croker.
