About the Performance:
Saxophonist Colin Stetson’s music reaches beyond genre and defies classification. Bridging the gaps between jazz, experimental music, indie pop and electronica, his unique sound has earned him collaborations with such varied artists as Anthony Braxton, Tom Waits, Laurie Anderson, Arcade Fire and Bon Iver. The way he often imitates delay lines and distortion pedals with his saxophone has to be seen to believed.
Kicking off the final evening of Last Saturday Roots in Jazz is the Jim Seeley Trio. Seeley, a New York trumpet player is known for his current work in Chico O'Farrill's Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra and the Arturo O'Farrill Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra. He has also played and toured with Ray Charles and has collaborated with free jazz icon Lester Bowie and the Art Ensemble of Chicago.
Hosted by HPR's Don Gordon.
