Turning Point Ensemble meets Hollenbeck, Nachoff & Houle
SFU Fei & Milton Wong Experimental Theatre
Time 8:00 pm
Turning Point Ensemble goes fifth stream in a concert that brings together three of the most innovative and influential musicians eliminating the boundaries between jazz and new music. Drummer and composer John Hollenbeck, four times nominated for GRAMMY awards, is a drummer more like a mythical hydra, and a conceptualist able to translate the traditions of jazz and new music into a fresh, eclectic, forward-looking language of his own invention. JUNO-nominated Canadian tenor saxophonist Quinsin Nachoff has earned a reputation for making “pure, bracing, thought-provoking music” that is “cliché and convention free” (Ottawa Citizen). Vancouver’s François Houle is “a spectacularly versatile clarinetist who appears to have no limitations stylistically or sonically” (Mark Zwed, LA Times). This one-of-a-kind program presents all new work especially written for these three superb musicians and the Turning Point Ensemble. Presented with Turning Point Ensemble & SFU Woodward's Cultural Programs.
