Join us at Dizzy’s and give NEA Jazz Master Slide Hampton the kind of 85th birthday celebration he deserves! One of the most distinguished figures in jazz history, this living legend was performing at Carnegie Hall with Lionel Hampton by the time he was 20 years old, and he’s since enjoyed a 60+ year career as a revered trombonist and composer. Slide will be in the audience each night, enjoying the sounds of Frank Basile and the powerhouse Slide Hampton Octet. These extraordinary musicians will perform Slide’s greatest works, spreading the joy of his countless contributions to the music and exemplifying their everlasting relevance.
