JD Allen Trio
Saturday, November 20, 7:00 pm
Part of the series: A love Supreme: Celebrating the Legacy of Alice & John Coltrane…..curated by Cat Henry.
In a review of JD Allen’s most recent release, “Toys / Die Dreaming” (August 2020) Larry Blumenthal of the Wall Street Journal stated, “Mr. Allen is an essential voice on jazz’s landscape for both his force and his restraint, as well as for the beauty of his tenor saxophone’s sound”. Allen and his co-creators, Ian Kenselaar on bass and Nic Cacioppo on drums, weave a mesmerizing narrative with short melodies as jumping off points for collective improvisation, underpinned by deep grooves and unexpected rhythmic motifs.
