Yellowjackets: The Paris Concert (2009)
In March 2008, internationally acclaimed fusion superstar group the Yellowjackets shared an unforgettable evening of Jazz at its very best with the New Morning audience in Paris. At the peak of their creative art, Bob Mintzer (saxophone), Russell Ferrante (keyboards), Jimmy Haslip (bass) and Marcus Baylor (drums) played with the unaltered intensity & jubilation of their 1981 debut when, as backing band for guitarist Robben Ford, they created the compelling, unmistakable Yellowjackets sound, combining bebop, funk, R&B and rock influences. In the course of their 25 year career, the challenging team of improvising masters – 14 time Grammy Award nominees & twice winners – has turned into a driving force in contemporary music. We are proud to offer the Yellowjackets' countless fans this jewel of musical sophistication & groove!
