Inspired by the legacy of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Bernard Linette's Interactive Sextet features some of the best jazz musicians on the Atlanta scene. Linnette strives for a well- arranged blend of straight-ahead, Latin, and avant garde grooves with select ballads. The sextet has played on stages from The Atlanta Jazz Festival to Churchill Grounds and Paris on Ponce, and with featured guest artist Wycliffe Gordon. They have also opened for Rene Marie and Freddy Cole. Check out the dates page for upcoming performances and futher information on their Sunday Jazz brunch at the Waverly Renaissance Hotel.
