This Thursday, March 8, The Jazz Gallery will present saxophonist Maria Grand at the Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning in Queens. An inveterate musical searcher of wide-ranging tastes, Grand was recently featured as a performer in Alicia Hall Moran’s ice skating alt-opera The Battle of the Carmens, which was staged on skating rinks at Bryant Park and Riverbank State Park this January. Grand was also a 2017 Jazz Gallery Residency Commission recipient, and created a similarly media-melding project featuring dance and spoken word. Before heading out to Queens for Ms. Grand’s performance, check out this bracing and exuberant excerpt from her commission project, below.
