Revive Da Live’s Tribute to G.U.R.U. & Jazzmatazz – 4/21

On April 21st at Le Poisson Rouge (NYC), to celebrate the life and legacy of G.U.R.U. and Jazzmatazz a year after his passing, Revive Music Group is putting together a monumental night of G.U.R.U. music. The show will consist of the bold arrangements of the 18-piece Revive Da Live Big Band, described in the Village Voice as “the city’s most electrifying young lions of jazz,” under the direction of pianist Marc Cary and trumpeter Igmar Thomas. The event will also include special guests, performers, raffles, and more fun.

The Beast (Pierce Freelon) has released this track as his own tribute to G.U.R.U. Grab your free download:
