Heritage/Evolution, PRISM Quartet with Greg Osby and Rudresh Mahanthappa
9/10 @ 6 PM, Vernon Park, Philadelphia, Free!
The PRISM Quartet is joined by jazz saxophone luminaries Greg Osby (Inner Circle and Blue Note recording artist) and Rudresh Mahanthappa (Downbeat’s alto saxophonist of the year) in a free concert of music for six saxophones.
The concert draws upon a groundbreaking body of music PRISM has commissioned since 2014 for its Heritage/Evolution project, bridging the saxophone's dual histories in jazz and classical music, with music by Osby, Mahanthappa, Tim Ries, Chris Potter, Miguel Zenón, and the Quartet’s own Matthew Levy.
Local musicians are invited to bring their instruments to Vernon Park. There will be a chance to join in at the end of the concert!
Rudresh, Greg, and Matt will be interviewed by J. Michael Harrison on WRTI's "The Bridge" this Friday at 10 PM (EST). Listen online at wrti.org.
