Will Calhoun's Native Lands Trio - Brooklyn Academy of Music
30 Lafayette Ave. - 718-636-4100
Fort Greene, NY 11217
Description: Will Calhoun earned renown as the explosive drummer of the Grammy Award-winning rock-funk-metal band Living Colour. His 2005 project, Native Lands, offered an antidote to jazz cliches, inviting artists like Pharaoh Sanders, Mos Def, Stanley Jordan, and Kevin Eubanks into the studio. With the Native Lands Trio, Calhoun carries that torch further, infusing tight jazz ensemble playing with touches of hip-hop, dance music, and other styles.
