Jason Rigby Quartet

February 26, 2010 § Leave a comment

Saturday, February 27th at 9&10pm, we are joined by the Jason Rigby Quartet, featuring Rigby on tenor sax, Cameron Brown on bass, Michael Holober on piano and Anthony Pinciotti on drums. Rigby has been hailed as “a truly lyrical musician” and “New York’s rising star of tenor sax.” His unique voice deftly combines many influences – critics recognize the creative mindset of Wayne Shorter, the energy of John Coltrane, and the elasticity and compositional style of Ornette Coleman and Paul Motian – emerging as something wholly new, compelling and yet recognizable. His leader releases “Translucent Space” (2006) and “The Sage” (2009), Fresh Sound Records, received stellar reviews and feature Rigby originals in a larger format, the latter of a quintet. This TRIO outing features a whole new collection of compositions penned exclusively for this band, and brings forth a fresh expression of the celebrated tradition of tenor trio. From Jim Macnie in the Village Voice:…the saxophonist’s quintet sustains a daunting finesse while swinging full tilt on the new The Sage.” Cover’s $10.
