Iranian-American saxist Hafez Modirzadeh, who first came to our attention on the excellent 2010 release Radif Suite, celebrates Post-Chromodal Out!, an ambitious new quintet effort that attempts to find common ground between Persian scales and their Western counterparts. Modirzadeh's comrades in this sometimes buoyant, sometimes stormy journey—trumpeter Amir ElSaffar, pianist Vijay Iyer, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Royal Hartigan—are all on hand tonight.
