JAZZ | Jimmy Bennington Colour and Sound

by

comment

Colour and Sound are two of the key ingredients to great drumming. While sound is fairly obvious, colour (the British spelling) is especially important when playing in free jazz circles. That's where Jimmy Bennington has spent much of his career, exploiting his percussive palette in group improvisations. It doesn't hurt that he studied with John Coltrane's drummer, Elvin Jones. He'll be joined at the Bop Shop by Fred Jackson on saxophone, Jerome Croswell, trumpet, and Ed Schuller, bass.

Jimmy Bennington Colour and Sound plays Friday, May 23, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $10. 271-3354; Bopshop.com; Jbcolourandsound.com.
