Brooklyn-born drummer Dana Hall is pursuing more than a jazz career in the footsteps of Max Roach, Art Blakey and Billy Higgins. He’s working on a doctorate in ethnomusicology from the University of Chicago.
Hall already is an assistant professor at the esteemed University of Illinois music school.
Now, at age 40, after years of gigging with the likes of Joshua Redman, Roy Hargrove and Malachi Thompson, Dana Hall has released his first album as a leader. It’s called “Into the Light.”
