At the end of March, saxophonist Steve Coleman will embark on an extended European tour with his trio Reflex, featuring stalwarts Anthony Tidd on bass and Sean Rickman on drums. But before Coleman takes his powerful and influential music overseas, it is only appropriate that the group steps out on their old proving ground—The Jazz Gallery stage. We are proud to present two nights of Coleman, Tidd, and Rickman this weekend, March 3rd and 4th.
These are concerts not to be missed, as Reflex has rarely performed as a group in the United States. The trio presents Coleman’s music in a nearly elemental state, transparently showcasing the subtle and sophisticated rhythmic counterpoint these musicians have developed over many years of playing. Check out the group playing at The Blue Whale in Los Angeles, below, but know that this only scratches the surface of what can happen this weekend at the Gallery.
Steve Coleman and Reflex play The Jazz Gallery on Friday, March 3rd, and Saturday, March 4th, 2017. The group features Mr. Coleman on alto saxophone, Anthony Tidd on ass, and Sean Rickman on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. each night. $35 general admission ($25 for members), $45 reserved cabaret seating ($35 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
