Sam Levin • Greg LaPine Chordless Quartet Oct 87:00 Door 7:30 Show $12 suggested donationDuring the pandemic, Sam Levin unexpectedly left New York and moved to a small town in Poland, where he turned his focus to jazz and composition. Sam’s recent album, Another Brooklyn, is the result of Sam’s creative work in isolation. The music is rooted in the jazz tradition but the compositions draw heavily on Sam’s influences from rock and the experiences of seeing so many different approaches to music at places like Tonic and the 55 Bar.With Noah Garabedian on bass, Silvan Joray on guitar and Noam Borns on piano.The Greg LaPine Chordless Quartet is an acoustic ensemble consisting of tenor saxophone, trumpet, double bass and drums. With each member bringing a unique and deeply creative voice of their own, this group acts as a vehicle for paying tribute to adventurous improvisers of the past, while searching out and exploring any new territory encountered along the way. The repertoire is focused around fresh, forward-looking, original compositions and creative adaptations of songs from musical heroes across genres.
