Description

'Live from the Detroit Jazz Festival - 2014' documents the third incarnation of the Mack Avenue SuperBand, an all-star ensemble of bandleaders from the superb roster of the Motor City jazz label. This powerhouse congregation joined forces under the leadership of bassist Rodney Whitaker to dazzle a hometown crowd in picturesque Hart Plaza, with the results captured for another knockout live recording.

Joining Whitaker as three-time veterans are his longtime rhythm section partner, drummer Carl Allen; pianist Aaron Diehl; and guitarist Evan Perri of the Hot Club of Detroit. Alto saxophonist Tia Fuller returns from the SuperBand's debut outing while vibraphonist Warren Wolf and tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum make it two in a row after joining the band for the first time in 2013. The final - and perhaps most important - member of the ensemble is the enthusiastic Labor Day weekend crowd. As the titular leader/music director Whitaker states, "The Detroit Jazz Festival is one of the best live festivals on Earth to play."
