This Wednesday and Thursday, July 27th and 28th, The Jazz Gallery is proud to present bassist Eric Revis and his quartet Parallax. Even as he continues to hold the center of Branford Marsalis’s quartet, Revis has become more active as a leader in recent years with both Parallax and his working trio, who just released a new record—Crowded Solitudes—on the Clean Feed label. Writing in the New York Times this past weekend, Nate Chinen praised the trio for “…bringing tangible shape to compositions that often court abstraction.” Chinen singled out the track “Anamesis: Pt. 1 & 2,” an extended piece dedicated to Tamir Rice and Sandra Bland that “…gradually shifts from elegy to outrage, evoking the devices of a composer like Charles Mingus.”
This weekend, Revis and Parallax will perform at one of jazz’s legendary events—The Newport Jazz Festival. But be sure to catch them on our stage this week as they probe and shape a book of mysterious and evocative compositions.
Eric Revis and Parallax perform at The Jazz Gallery on Wednesday, July 27th, and Thursday, July 28th, 2016. The group features Mr. Revis on bass, Kris Davis on piano, Ken Vandermark on reeds, and Chad Taylor on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. each night. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. FREE for SummerPass holders. Purchase tickets here.
