Jean Toussaint

Time Out says

Jean Toussaint, one of the great tenor sax players in the modern history of jazz, first made a name for himself in the early 1980s when the late jazz drummer Art Blakey called him to work as part of the Jazz Messengers. That was the start of an important career with other friends and musicians from his generation such as Wallace Roney, Terence Blanchard, Mulgrew Miller and Donald Edwards, who also played with the Jazz Messengers, and with legends of jazz including Gil Evans, McCoy Tyner and Wynton Marsalis. Now with a new band, made up of the likes of Perico Sambeat and Bruce Barth, Toussaint re-creates the music of the Jazz Messengers exclusively for the Mas i Mas Festival.
