Markham Jazz Festival 2016

Turboprop

Innovative and electrifying, jazz drummer Ernesto Cervini has energy to burn, whether radiating it from behind his kit or working on his musical and educational projects. With his sextet, Turboprop, Cervini flexes his arranging muscles, and creates musical textures, and moods on which these musicians can play. The band’s sound is reminiscent of the hard swinging Jazz Messenger bands of Art Blakey, although they tackle a wide range of music; from Charlie Parker to Claude Debussy to Radiohead, plus originals from the band members.
