Randy Weston's
African Rhythms Quintet

NEA Jazz Master Randy Weston is an internationally renowned pianist, composer, bandleader and cultural ambassador, whose compositions encompass the vast rhythmic heritage of Africa.

Still a true innovator and visionary after six decades of active work, Randy Weston continues to inform and inspire. Although Weston cites Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Art Tatum as piano heroes, it was Thelonious Monk who had the greatest impact on him. “He was the most original I ever heard,” Mr. Weston remembers. “He played like they must have played in Egypt 5000 years ago.” Weston’s lifelong connection with African music and culture is due in large part to his father, Frank Edward Weston, who told his son that he was, “an African-born in America.” “He told me I had to learn about myself, about him and about my grandparents,” stated Weston, “and the only way to do it was I’d have to go back to the motherland one day.”
