your night of great live music continues at 10pm with the BARRETT MARTIN GROUP.  Grammy-winning producer, composer, and drummer Barrett Martin returns with his modern jazz ensemble, The Barrett Martin Group, and their 6th studio album “Transcendence.” Renowned as a session drummer and percussionist on over 100 Rock, Blues, Jazz, and World music albums, Barrett’s work can be heard on albums by REM, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mad Season, Screaming Trees, Walking Papers, Tuatara, Blues legend CeDell Davis, and recording sessions that range from the Peruvian Amazon, to Brazil, Cuba, and even Jerusalem. He recently won a Latin Grammy for his production work on the Brazilian album “Jardim-Pomar.” Re-emerging with his own Barrett Martin Group and their newest album “Transcendence”, the band effortlessly blends Jazz, Rock, African, Brazilian, and Cuban rhythms, Ambient music, and a mixture of exotic percussion to create an album that leans heavily into Jazz, while still embracing other forms of music. “Transcendence” also features some amazing guest performers including Jazz legend Wayne Horvitz, Senegalese Wolof drum master Thione Diop, REM guitarist Peter Buck, and Queens Of The Stone Age guitarist David Catching.
