Kenneth Killeen of IMC caught up with legendary Detroit-born drummer Jim Black amidst his pan-European tour as a mentor of a musical laboratory, Criss Cross Europe.
Jim is currently coaching the band of six rising stars of the European jazz scene, whose tour stops in Dublin at the Freemasons’ Hall on Thursday 9th December 2021.
Berlin-based American drummer Jim Black - is one of the most influential voices in contemporary jazz. The Wire referred to Black as a ‘’complete musician and wonderfully fertile composer”. Black is internationally acknowledged for his virtuosic but highly personal approach to contemporary jazz. He stands at the forefront of a new generation of jazz innovators through projects like Human Feel, Tim Berne's Bloodcount, Ellery Eskelin's trio, Pachora, and Dave Douglas' Tiny Bell Trio. “Wickedly inventive… A revelation.” - CMJ
