Former drummer and musical director for Fela Kuti, Tony Allen has a very particular style that developed equally from African sources as from such rhythmatists as Kenny Clarke, Max Roach and, especially, Art Blakey, founder of the Jazz Messengers and one of his first idols. This is a unique opportunity to catch the co-inventor of Afrobeat as he pays tribute to one of the most iconic drummers in the history of hard bop.
