WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Between 1996 and 2007, three of the most prolific and innovative saxophonists in jazz, Michael Brecker, Joe Lovano, and Dave Leibman, played together in an experimental group known as the Saxophone Summit. Their repertoire focused on the difficult and seldom heard late-career music of John Coltrane. After Brecker succumbed to Leukemia in 2007, it seemed natural to call upon saxophonist Ravi Coltrane, a thoughtful and challenging artist in his own right, to participate in the evolving homage to his father. Saxophone "battles" have traditionally inspired musicians to raise their game. But this group is more than just a cutting contest. It has become a multi-faceted musical equation greater than the sum of its parts. Note: There is a $10.00 food or drink minimum per person.
