Matt Wilson's Christmas Tree-O
The Western Front
Time 8:00 pm
“There are few more emphatically dazzling drummers working today.”—JazzTimes
Drummer Matt Wilson (Joe Lovano, John Scofield, Charlie Haden) and his consummate trio featuring Jeff Lederer saxophone and Paul Sikivie bass put a thoroughly new stamp on the yuletide classics. Embracing chestnuts like “Hark The Herald Angels Sing”, “Winter Wonderland”, “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and others, they bring a hard swinging-to-out there jazz sensibility to seasonal classics. Masterful musicianship, mischievous humour, vaudevillian flair—Wilson’s trio is a perfect treat for jazz aficionados wishing to celebrate the spirit of the holiday season with joyous abandon.
