On Saturday, April 13th the group 5ive For RW will perform at An die Musik Live in dedication to the musical and cultural legacy of recently departed NEA Jazz Master Dr. Randy Weston. He would have turned 93 on April 6, 2019.

The group features the iconic tenor saxophonist Billy Harper, who has graced the bandstands of Art Blakey, Lee Morgan, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, Max Roach, McCoy Tyner, and recently The Cookers. Billy was an integral part of Dr. Weston’s African Rhythms for several decades until Dr. Weston’s passing Sept 1st of last year.

The special guest pianist for this band is the world-famous composer and arranger Larry Willis. Larry has performed with an array of the greatest names in music including Ft. Apache, Hugh Masekela, Heads of State, and his own band Heavy Blue.

The musical director and anchor for the band is alto saxophonist and flutist T.K. Blue, who worked with Abdullah Ibrahim (a recent NEA Jazz Master recipient), Sam Rivers, Chico Hamilton, NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Scott, and the longtime musical director for Dr. Randy Weston’s African Rhythms.

Rounding out the band are the phenomenal drummer Eric Kennedy and extraordinary bassist Jeff Reed. Both Eric and Jeff are featured on T.K.’s latest CD Amour on Dot Time Records.

The band will perform selected repertoire from the musical canon of Dr. Weston as well as some originals penned by Harper and Blue.
