Black & White Moments presents Wayne Krantz at CounterCulture
Black & White Moments is bringing to Bangaloreans, another international great.
Counter Culture - one of the city?s (particularly, Whitefield?s) better music hubs ? is host to Wayne Krantz. Krantz, as most aficionados of that ilk will know, is what is described in music circles as a ?guitar god? (freely translated, it means ?one who plays guitar well and is also famous?.) On February, 28th 2015, Wayne Krantz Trio will perform there, with Bangalore?s best known rock band, Thermal and a Quarter, who will open for Krantz. This New York based Jazz guitarist and composer has been linked with artists like Steely Dan, Billy Cobham, Michael Brecker and many more. With his tenth new album Good Piranha/ Bad Piranha, Wayne Krantz continues to showcase his talent. His ability to improvise and remain non- mainstream is what has kept him on, pretty much, the number one spot in the game for over three decades. Wayne Krantz now returns to tour India after a gap five years. This time, the Wayne Krantz Trio tours with two very well known musicians, bass guitar legend Anthony Jackson and drummer Cliff Almond
Wayne Krantz bass player Anthony Jackson in a 1979 recording session with Bangalorean jazz diva Radha Thomas ad with other jazz greats, Leon Pendarvis, Rubens Bassini, Ryo Kawasaki, and Alex Blake. Incidentally, Anthony Jackson has created a connection in the past with Bangalore. He was the bass guitairist on an album recorded in New York, called ?Mirror Of My Mind? which featured Bangalorean jazz singer Radha Thomas, who was the singer and lyricist for the songs on that album, in collaboration with another jazz great, guitarist Ryo Kawaski. The opening act, Thermal and a Quarter, from their inception in 1996, they have kind of been an ambassador for Bangalore in the global rock scenes. They have taken their five albums across Europe, Asia and USA. Black & White Moments does well by Bangaloreans, bringing such international talent to the Bangalore stage. Book your tickets now!
