Rudy Royston
Rudy Royston, a drummer well know for his crackling, kinetic work with Dave Douglas, J.D. Allen, Bill Frisell and other VIPs, headlines the Vanguard in the wake of his recent debut as a leader, 303 (on Douglas's Greenleaf Music label), which pays tribute to his Denver roots. Expect an accessible sound that doesn't pander—postbop with a tender sophisticated-pop sensibility, perhaps—as Royston leads a septet in pieces from the album.
