PORTSMOUTH, N.H., March 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club Features NEA Jazz Master, GRAMMY® Award-Winner & 8x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Saxophonist and Composer KENNY GARRETT and his Acclaimed Quartet on Thursday April 27 at 7:30 P.M. Kenny Garrett won the 2022 Downbeat Magazine Critic's Poll for "Alto Saxophonist of the Year" and his album, Sounds from the Ancestors, was awarded the 2021 Jazz Journalist Association "Album of the Year."

"One of the most admired alto saxophonists in jazz after Charlie Parker"

"Kenny Garrett is one of the most respected and frequently imitated saxophonists in the jazz world"

"An extraordinary performance"
— DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE (2021 Album Review of 'Sounds from the Ancestors')

NEA Jazz Master and GRAMMY® Award-Winning Saxophonist and Composer KENNY GARRETT's illustrious career includes hallmark stints with Miles Davis, Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers, Donald Byrd, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, and the Duke Ellington Orchestra, as well as a heralded career as a solo artist that began more than 30 years ago.

Garret has recorded 5 albums with Miles Davis, 3 albums with Chick Corea, 3 albums with Freddie Hubbard, 2 albums with Donald Byrd, 2 albums with Roy Haynes, 6 albums with Marcus Miller, as well as albums with Christian McBride, Terrence Blanchard, Sting, Q-Tip, John Scofield, and countless others. Garret has also released 17 acclaimed albums as a Leader or Co-Leader with 12 of those albums reaching the Top 20 on Billboard's Jazz Album Chart.

Garrett is easily recognized as one of modern jazz's brightest and most influential living masters and he shows no signs of resting on his laurels as he continues to receive critical acclaim for his current work. Kenny Garrett's latest release, Sounds from the Ancestors (2021), is a multi-faceted album which was named one of the Top 50 albums of 2021 by NPR and was selected as the 2021 Jazz Journalist Association "Album of the Year". "Ultimately, 'Sounds from the Ancestors' amounts to another major work from Garrett; it easily stands with his — and the year's — finest albums," stated AllMusic in their album review.

Garrett, 61, who has been a vital force in jazz since his teens, was selected by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) as an NEA Jazz Master (Class of 2023). This is often described as the nation's highest honor for jazz. According to longstanding custom, the new class will be honored in a gala NEA Jazz Masters Tribute Concert, to be held on April 1, 2023. The concert, presented in collaboration with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC will be free to attend with a reservation, and webcast live at and

Kenny Garrett has garnered worldwide critical recognition for his versatility in Jazz, Blues, and R&B contexts. In 1987, Garrett began working with Miles Davis, becoming a member of Davis' working group—a collaboration that lasted for five years. Garrett recorded and performed in concert with Davis until his passing in 1991. Additionally, Garrett holds an honorary doctorate in music from Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.
