The Brooklyn Jazz Underground is proud to present Live at the Prospect Range, a new concert series featuring artists from the collective, Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records and the Brooklyn creative music scene. The inaugural concert on November 6 will feature long-standing members of the Brooklyn Jazz Underground. At 7:30, The Adam Kolker Trio featuring a chamber ensemble will take the stage. Saxophonist Kolker, who has received praises from The New York Times (“a real improviser”) and All Music (“Kolker continues to stand apart as an inventive performer, composer and arranger with his brilliant reflections” for CD “Reflections”), will be joined by guitarist Steve Cardenas, drummer Billy Mintz and a chamber orchestra to perform new music composed and orchestrated for this ensemble.
The second set, starting at 9:00, will feature The Relative Quartet, featuring drummer/composer Owen Howard, Saxophonist Chet Doxas, pianist John Stetch and bassist Michael Bates. Howard has been a mainstay on the New York Jazz scene for the past 20 years and most recently was honored with a prestigious Juno award nomination for his album “Drum Lore” (BJUR Records).
