Han Bennink
Master drummer Han Bennink will visit the studios of WTJU Friday morning January 27th at 11 a.m. to talk with The Jazz Messenger. Flying in to Charlottesville directly from The Netherlands, Bennink will discuss his concert that night at UVA's Brooks Hall, and talk about his long, influential career in jazz and improvised music.

Bennink is just beginning the American leg of his 70th birthday tour.  He will be performing at 8 p.m. in Brooks Hall with violinist Mary Oliver.

In addition, some of Charlottesville's finest improvisers will sit in, and Bennink will conduct a brief clinic for aspiring percussionists immediately following the concert.
