On July 7th 1994, Michel Petrucciani hosted the second ever "Dreyfus Night" – a special concert in Paris meant to showcase the wonderful array of musicians associated with Francis Dreyfus and his new label. The night before the "Dreyfus Night," Francis Dreyfus attended a concert of Marcus Miller with Kenny Garrett. The two enthusiastically welcomed Francis’ invitation to his special concert, and this historical quintet was born. The line-up was never to be repeated – this was truly a once in a lifetime meeting of some of the most important figures in recent jazz history: Marcus Miller, Michel Petrucciani, Kenny Garrett, Bireli Lagrene, and Lenny White. Together they shocked and delighted a very lucky Parisian audience with a crackling set of funky jazz – a "Massey Hall" for the modern era!
