In March 2008 fusion superstar group the Yellowjackets shared an unforgettable evening of Jazz with the New Morning audience in Paris. At the peak of their creative art, they played with the unaltered intensity & jubilation of their 1981 debut. Starting as back-up band for guitarist Robben Ford, they created the compelling, unmistakable Yellowjackets sound: bebop, funk, R&B and rock influences. In the course of their 25 year career, the challenging team of improvising masters has turned into a driving force in contemporary music, earning 14 Grammy nominations & 2 Grammys.
