The dynamic partnership forged between Dean Magraw and Eric Kamau Grávátt, was captured in the studio for a jazz fusion album. The album is stripped down to the essence of a mere drum set and solo guitar. The two virtuosos create soundscapes of rhythm, melody and dimension, with every performance a dazzling reminder their incredible feel and talent. Magraw is a guitarist who has performed with some of music's most iconic players from jazz legend Jack McDuff to the renowned Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra. Magraw’s eclectic mix of musical influences can be heard in his more than a dozen albums. Gravatt, a master jazz drummer out of the fusion and post-bop traditions, was the drummer with the legendary band Weather Report. In the mid-1970s he moved to the Twin Cities and joined the nationally acclaimed quartet, Natural Life. After a hiatus from the stage, Grávátt has resumed performing, most frequently with his band Source Code. Click here to purchase tickets.
