New music from "back Home" EP Release

February 15, 2018

Thursday at 7:00pm and 8:30pm

Chilean native Melissa Aldana is the 2013 Winner of the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition, one of the most compelling and prodigious tenor saxophonists of her time. She follows up her 2014 Concord release Melissa Aldana & Crash Trio with the explorative and deeply swinging Back Home, with Pablo Menares on bass and the in-demand Jochen Rueckerton drums, bringing a supple and unpredictable rhythmic élan to the session. The three project an uncommonly full orchestral sound, rich in spiritual intensity, all in the absence of a harmony instrument.
