Fred Wesley Generations Trio

Atlantis Basel
Saturday, 30 March

Decades after his work with James Brown and George Clinton that established him as one of the architects of funk, Fred Wesley has embarked on a new project that connects him to his jazz roots and the future—Generations.
Generations is an expandable trio featuring Fred Wesley on trombone, Leonardo Corradi on organ, and French drummer Tony Match. Three musicians, who originally came together to pay tribute to the soulful jazz of legendary organist Jimmy Smith, have come together and continue to groove.
Their show combines Wesley's talent and experience working with artists from Count Basie and Ray Charles to Lenny Kravitz and D'Angelo; Corradi's energetic reflection of Smith and other historic jazz giants; and Match's jazz drumming inspired by unique influences such as African beats and electronic sounds.
Match is a French drummer, MD, and music producer. For more than 20 years he has been working with the crème de la crème of jazz musicians, both as a producer and as a musician and musical director. Match has composed, produced, and mixed more than 200 tracks for major and leading independent labels, including Deutsche Grammophon and Universal.
Corradi is one of the most talented European organists and considered a rising Italian star. He was voted the best Hammond player in 2010 by JAZZIT magazine (Italy) and recorded his first solo album with Peter Bernstein (guitar) at the age of 18. Corradi and Match tour with Fred Wesley and Generations through the world.
Tickets are CHF 35 in advance or CHF 40 at the door (students get a CHF 5 discount).
