TONY ALLEN QUARTET

With his latest project, Tony Allen realizes a childhood dream: to play the music of the most african of the bebop fathers, Art Blakey. This same drummer who spend years in African, earning the nickname "Buhaina", and a major influence on Tony. When he hear for the first time an Art Blakey record back in Lagos in the early 60s, he though he was listening to several percussionists playing at the same time, not imagining that a single drummer was playing his instrument.. From there on, year after year, he too developed a unique & personal way of playing the drums as if it was an orchestra. This tribute to one of the sources of inspirations that led Tony to create Afrobeat, is a way of rounding the circle, moreover with the project being released by Blue Note, home of so much of the modern jazz repertoire.
