Brian Blade - Mama Rosa (US)

Brian Blade originally made a name for himself as an exceptionally gifted drummer alongside jazz legends such as Wayne Shorter, Kenny Garrett and Herbie Hancock. He was named best contemporary jazz drummer in 2008 and jazz drummer of the year in 2009, incidentally the year that Brian Blade switched gears artistically, with an album featuring his talents as a guitarist and singer. In the singer/songwriter scene, he had already appeared as a sideman with the likes of Norah Jones, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Marianne Faithfull. With his album and project Mama Rosa he has consistently demonstrated that he also possesses an unusual gift as a frontman and storyteller. Brian Blade – Mama Rosa wins over the listener with intelligent song writing that elevates the folky, poppy songs, a transparent, weightless sound and a warm, evocative singing voice. His lyrics relate family stories, trace memories and pursue religious reflections. 

For his project Brian Blade – Mama Rosa, the 46-year-old American artist is coming to Moers with five top-class musicians, who will accompany him on stage on piano, guitar, bass, drums and vocals.
