At the frontier of contemporary music Brooklyn born Steve Lehman and his octet have developed a sound that combines jazz and contemporary classical music.He has been recognised as a major talent worldwide and named a Downbeat Magazine International Critics Poll Rising Star four times. Lehman has performed and recorded with renowed artists such as Anthony Braxton, Mark Dresser, Vijay Iyer, and High Priest of Anti-Pop Consortium.
Produced by Sound and Music and Birmingham Jazz this concert is part of a short tour of Lehman’s octet which features Jonathan Finlayson on trumpet,Mark Shim on tenor sax, Tim Albright on trombone, Chris Dingman on vibraphone, Drew Gress on double bass, Dan Peck on tuba and Tyshawn Sorey on drums. This is set to be a magnificent concert to start the new year and highly recommended.
