Steve Lehman
Prolific saxist-composer Steve Lehman has focused on the trio idiom during the last couple of years, but here, he returns to the octet featured on 2009's extraordinary Travail, Transformation, and Flow. Expect to hear fresh Lehman works custom-built for the band—and slated for Mise en Abîme, a June release on Pi Recordings—which combines sleek, electronica-inspired rhythms with luminous horn arrangements and torrid soloing. Here, the octet appears for five nights straight, from Jan 14 through Jan 18, followed on Jan 19 by HPrizm's Waves, a group led by Antipop Consortium MC High Priest and featuring Lehman, pianist David Virelles and bassist Henry Grimes. (Note that each show is a two-sets-for-the-price-of-one affair, with a Lehman Q&A in between the performances.)
