Gabriel and his like-minded cadre of jazzers will perform a show comprised of material from the iconic midcentury trumpeter Blue Mitchell, including his well-known songs: Blue Soul, Blues On My Mind, Capers, Chick's Tune, Fungii Mama, I'll Close My Eyes, Mamacita, Mississippi Jump, Portrait of Jenny, Sir John, Step Lightly, Peace, Sweet & Lovely, & Sweet Pumpkin.
Gabriel will be playing his newly acquired 1968 Martin trumpet and his Signature Wedge mouthpiece for that 'sound', and his band will bring along their classic vibe: w/ Craig Scott (d), Jason De Couto (p), Paul Rushka (b), and Cory Weeds (s).
Blue Mitchell has inspired Gabriel for many years, and some of this material has been recorded for Gabriel's 2018 record MidCentury Modern Vol. 1. Check them out:
