Dizzy's Club

Jonathan Barber & Vision Ahead

With alto saxophonist Godwin Louis, guitarist Andrew Renfroe, pianist Taber Gable, bassist Matt Dwonszyk, and drummer Jonathan Barber.

Vision Ahead is an ascendant New York jazz quintet led by Modern Drummer’s “#1 Best Up-and-Coming Drummer of 2018,” Jonathan Barber. Still in his 20s, Barber has already worked with artists such as Kenny Barron, Jeremy Pelt, Jimmy Greene, Nicholas Payton, J.D. Allen, Terrace Martin, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, and Erykah Badu. Now he’s now stepping out in full force as a bandleader. DownBeat magazine calls Vision Ahead’s self-titled debut album Barber’s “greatest accomplishment to date,” but make no mistake, this group is more than the Jonathan Barber Quintet; this is unmistakably Vision Ahead, a distinctive and close-knit group of musicians who have been working toward this moment for years. Featuring Godwin Louis on saxophone, Andrew Renfroe on guitar, Matt Dwonszyk on bass, and Taber Gable on keys and piano, Vision Ahead offers a fresh blend of classic jazz with elements of gospel, rock, soul, and fusion that’s already attracting listeners across generations.
