King, and Dr. John. Tonight Calhoun is bringing his jazz quintet to Dizzy’s Club to perform music from his latest release on Motéma Records, Celebrating Elvin Jones.. Alongside saxophonist Troy Roberts, pianist Donald Vega, and bassist Buster Williams, Calhoun will draw from his unusually large musical toolkit to pay tribute to master drummer Elvin Jones.
