Jazz at Atlas presents: Broken Shadows

A powerhouse convergence of four eminent players — Tim Berne on alto saxophone; Chris Speed on tenor saxophone and clarinet; Reid Anderson on bass; and Dave King on drums — gather "to reinterpret the timeless sounds conjured by great men from the rural South and heartland of the country: Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Dewey Redman, Charlie Haden. These iconic figures created an ever-resonant avant-garde out of the folk-art influences of their early surroundings, a canon that comprises the hard blues and deep lament, keening celebration and hollering protest."
