Rodney Whitaker trio
“…an inexhaustibly swinging bassist with a mammoth-sized
sound and an infectious personality as radiant as his
walking lines and solos.” – Detroit Free Press
Whitaker, a father of seven children, has devoted much attention to building a world-class Jazz Studies Department at Michigan State University (which in 2013 conferred on him the honor of Distinguished Professor of Jazz Bass). In addition to a first-class faculty ensemble, the MSU Professors of Jazz, Whitaker formed a co-led project with drummer Carl Allen that generated the critically acclaimed, pocket-heavy Mack Avenue recordings Get Ready (2007) and Work To Do (2011). More recently, Whitaker has also served as bassist and music director for the Mack Avenue SuperBand, a group of label all-stars convened for the 2012 and 2013 editions of the Detroit Jazz Festival, and documented on Live! From The 33rd Annual Detroit Jazz Festival.
