8:00PM  STAN KILLIAN
Stan Killian, tenor sax;  tba, piano;  tba, bass;  Shareef Teher, drums

The New York–based tenor saxophonist and composer has released two critically acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records. “Unified” features Roy Hargrove, David Binney and Jeremy Pelt and “Evoke” documents his 2012 working 55 Bar quintet of Mike Moreno, Benito Gonzalez, Corcoran Holt, and McClenty Hunter.

“Stan Killian is reminiscent of Jimmy Heath in that his compositions and tenor saxophone work make each other better. His playing is smart but unpretentious, logical yet unrestrained. That kind of balance is hard to achieve in jazz.”-- Jazz Times

Martin Nevin Quintet image

Martin will explore music from his recently release album, Tenderness is Silent, with a new instrumentation.

"Nevin's goal isn't to overpower or impress the listener, but rather to present a way of experiencing the music that is based on deep intuition and an emotional connection. It's a distinctive approach, particularly for a debut record, and that it works as well as it does here is a reflection of Nevin's promise as a composer and bandleader.” -Troy Dostert (All About Jazz)
