Featuring three masters who span two generations, OPTIONS is a new trio comprising long-time collaborators, bassist Eric Revis and drummer Nasheet Waits – best known for their work together in the acclaimed trio TARBABY with Orrin Evans– plus legendary multi-reed player Bennie Maupin. Best known for his atmospheric bass clarinet playing on Miles Davis’ classic Bitches Brew album, as well as other Davis recordings Bennie Maupin was also a founding member of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters, as well as a performer and composer in Hancock’s influential Mwandishi band. He has performed with groups led by Marion Brown, Pharoah Sanders, and Chick Corea; played regularly with Roy Haynes and Horace Silver; and recorded with McCoy Tyner, Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard, Jack DeJohnette, Eddie Henderson, and Woody Shaw. His approach is described as “intentional and profound, yet alive in the interpretation of the moment.” Eric Revis has established himself as one of the most innovative and in-demand bassists of his generation. Named Rising Star bassist by Downbeat magazine in 2017, he has held the bass chair with Branford Marsalis' quartet since 1997 and has recorded seven acclaimed albums as a leader. Drummer Nasheet Waits, son of the renowned percussionist Freddie Waits, was heard in Santa Fe this past July with Kenny Barron and Dave Holland at the 14th annual New Mexico Jazz Festival. He first came to prominence as a member of Max Roach’s famed percussion ensemble, M’BOOM, after which he became a standing member of reedman Antonio Hart’s various ensembles. An originating member of Jason Moran’s Bandwagon, he was also the drummer for Andrew Hill’s various projects, as well as the Fred Hersch Trio for many years. His personal philosophy and approach is one of balancing Tradition and Modernism.
