This Friday, The Jazz Gallery is proud to welcome saxophonist Román Filiú back to our stage. Over the past year, Filiú has continued to stretch himself both as a leader and sideman. He’s led performances with long-running groups like Ouroboros and Musae, as well as newer projects, like his lithe chamber trio with cellist Christopher Hoffman and drummer Craig Weinrib. As a sideman, Filiú appeared on Henry Threadgill’s newest record Old Locks and Irregular Verbs (Pi), a stunning tribute to the great composer-conductor Butch Morris (which also featured masseurs Weinrib and Hoffman).
This Friday at the Gallery, Filiú will bring yet another project to our stage—Quarteria. This group features some heavy rhythmic propulsion from the rhythm team of drummer Damion Reid and percussionist Yusnier Sanchez, as well as many of Filiú’s regular collaborators, including tenor saxophonist Maria Grand and pianist David Bryant. Before checking out this exciting group at the Gallery, watch this video of Filiú and Ouroboros at the Gallery from earlier this year.
Saxophonist Román Filiú and Quarteria perform at The Jazz Gallery on Friday, November 18th, 2016. Mr. Filiú will be joined by Maria Grand on tenor saxophone, Josh Lawrence on trumpet, David Bryant on piano, Martin Nevin on bass, Damion Reid on drums, and Yusnier Sanchez on percussion. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
