Kasimu Taylor brings his superb band to Joe's Cafe on a late summer night for some cool jazz.
Kasimu is a trumpet player who does a Miles Davis tribute show on Miles' birthday every year. He grew up in North City and started playing as a youngster, following in the great man's footsteps. A St. Louis trumpet player who celebrates Miles' birthday better have chops and Kas has the chops! Last year at Joe's he tapped into a move that Monk would have been proud of by repeating a phrase about eight times before moving on with the tune. He is a deep, post-bop player who can also pump out a standard, straight, with the best of them. His musicianship extends into original compositions that are exquisite. He is a true jazz master, and we are honored to have him in our little club.
