Join us on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at 7 pm as Jazz Bridge in partnership with PNC Arts Alive will present a virtual concert with drummer, Justin Faulkner, to premier on Jazz Bridge’s website, www.jazzbridge.org.
Justin Faulkner, in a quote, The New York Times cited him as one of “Five drummers whose time is now.” He is quoted as saying, “So what you’re feeling and hearing should go from within to the drums. If you’re not feeling what you’re playing, then you’re just meandering… If the music doesn’t build, what’s it going to do?”
Faulkner grew up in Philadelphia and attended public schools, singing in the choir. This experience taught him about balance and blending with other voices. Justin started playing gospel, R&B and classical music at 7; at 13 he began weekly gigs with the funk/free-jazz bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma....
