The Vincent Chandler Collective returns to the Dirty Dog Jazz Café for a four-night residency, February 7-10 with two shows each night. He played with his band at the Dirty Dog in 2013 and more recently with the Detroit Jazz Festival All-stars, last fall.

 

 

As a special treat the VC Collective will perform a tribute to the music of “The Jazz Crusaders” while at the Dirty Dog next week. The “Jazz Crusaders” were a widely popular Jazz/Funk Fusion band formed in the 1960’s by Wilton Felder, Stix Hooper, Joe Sample, and Wayne Henderson. The group lasted well into the 1990’s.

Professor Vincent A. Chandler, is currently on the faculty at Wayne State University as Lecturer of Jazz Studies and Trombone.  Mr. Chandler earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Music and a Masters of Music in Improvisation from the University of Michigan.  Working in a university environment allows him to share his knowledge and expertise with the new generation of Jazz artists and to be exposed to new and emerging talent, and fresh musical ideas.

 

 

As a native Detroiter,  he was able to draw upon the rich Jazz community here as he became a protégé of such Detroit legends as Wendell Harrison, Donald Walden, Marcus Belgrave, Harold McKinney, Kenn Cox, Marion Hayden, James Carter, Geri Allen, Regina Carter and many others. These Detroit Jazz icons shaped and defined the world-famous Detroit Jazz sound they helped cultivate from the late 60’s onward.

 

 

Chandler is also respected and admired on the world Jazz stage. This is through his impressive work with such Jazz luminaries and style makers such as Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Wynton Marsalis, Joe Henderson and Roy Hargrove –  all award-winning, major recording artists.

 

 

He is a featured soloist on “Requiem,” from Roy Hargrove’s only Big Band CD called “Emergence,” James Carter’s “At the Crossroads,” and Rodney Whitaker/Carl Allen’s “Work to Do.” In 2014 he released his first CD as a bandleader, called Vincent Chandler “Embraceable,” including Robert Hurst on Bass.
