Willie Pickens Quintet

The octogenarian pianist is playing with as much power and focus as ever, plus a degree of inventiveness and daring one does not expect from players who have nothing left to prove. He'll be joined by trumpeter Pharez Whitted, saxophonist Todd Herbert, bassist Dennis Carroll and drummer Robert Shy.
