Richard Nelson Imaginary Ensemble
January 31, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12 – $15
The Richard Nelson Imaginary Ensemble defies categorization with programs that range from straight-ahead jazz to progressive jazz (and improvised music of all sorts) to music that draws freely across the rock/pop/folk/blues spectrum. Alongside guitarist Nelson’s electric-tinged contemporary jazz compositions, expect South African jazz, music by Thelonious Monk, and other eclectic surprises. Nelson is joined by stellar bandmates Frank Mauceri (tenor saxophone), Peter Herman (guitar), Asher Barreras (bass), and RJ Miller (drums).
“Thirst for experimentation . . . pushing of known boundaries . . . appreciation for the time-tested sounds of the tradition. Not your typical guitar date.” –Cadence
“(Nelson’s) writing is complex but emotionally engaging, dense yet clean and resonant . . .The colors of the orchestra are spellbinding, evocative and powerful.” –New York City Jazz Record
Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door.
