Rudy Royston mergulhou há uma década na cena do jazz de Nova Iorque, rapidamente se tendo tornado, como sideman, num dos mais requisitados bateristas da atualidade, para além de ser hoje também um líder digno de nota.

 

   Em 2013, Royston atingia o 3º lugar como Rising Star Drums do critics poll da revista DownBeat, categoria na qual, logo no ano seguinte, alcançou o 1º lugar. Na sequência do um aclamado álbum de estreia – “303” –, Rudy Royston formou o OriOn triO com Jon Irabagon, um dos grandes virtuosos do saxofone de hoje, vencedor da Thelonious Monk International Sax Competition (2008) e dos títulos de Rising Star Alto Saxophone (2011) e Rising Star Tenor Saxophone (2013) pelos críticos da DownBeat, e o contrabaixista Yasushi Nakamura, um músico que, ao lado de Hank Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Frank Kimbrough, Dave Douglas ou Clarence Penn, muito tem vindo a dar que falar nos últimos anos.

A native of Forth Worth, Texas, raised in Denver, Colorado, Rudy Royston moved to New York a decade ago, and soon drew well deserved praise as one of the most accomplished drummers in contemporary jazz, both as sideman and leader.

 

   Royston joined the top 3 in the Rising Star Drums category in the 2013 DownBeat Critics Poll, topping it the next year. Following his much acclaimed debut album – “303” –, Rudy Royston formed his OriOn triO with two of his “303” bandmates: Jon Irabagon, one of the greatest saxophone virtuosos of our time, winner of the Thelonious Monk International Sax Competition in 2008, #1 Rising Star Alto Saxophone and #1 Rising Star Tenor Saxophone in the DownBeat Critics Poll in 2011 and 2013, and the bassist Yasushi Nakamura, a musician who has quickly caught the attention of jazz lovers and critics as a sideman to Hank Jones, Wynton Marsalis, Frank Kimbrough, Dave Douglas or Clarence Penn.

In a way, he is to JD (Allen) what Elvin was to Coltrane. High praise indeed, but richly deserved.
