Forbes Graham Quartet 4/2 8:30pm

Next Monday, April 2nd, we welcome the Forbes Graham Quartet:

Forbes Graham - trumpet
Raqib Hassan - reeds
Ryan McGuire - bass
Luther Gray - drums

(There will be a $7 suggested donation for this event).

Doors - 8pm, Music - 8:30pm.

Forbes Graham has appeared on over 30 recordings, ranging in style from contemporary classical, metal, and jazz. His compositions are extremely mathematical, highly contrapuntal, vivacious, and invigorating, drawing from the cross-cultural experiences he has lived. His solo trumpet performances explore micro-climates created from deconstructing the trumpet and the utilization of extended techniques. He has performed or recorded with a diverse group of musicians, including Roger Turner, Kayo Dot, The Flying Luttenbachers, Rakalam Moses, Daughters, Jim Hobbs, Erase Errata, Thoughtstreams, and Raqib Hassan. He is currently a member of the Interdimensional Science Research Orchestra and the Full Metal Revolutionary Jazz Ensemble. He can also be found sitting in with the Fully Celebrated Orchestra from time to time. Festival appearances include High Zero, Full Force (curated by John Zorn), and The Wire's Adventures in Modern Music festival.


The next 2nd Monday Concert will be April 9, featuring:

Anthony Coleman's "Retake Iowa"
Know Trio + Jorrit Dijkstra
Jerry Sabatini
Chris Veilleux/Dana Jessen Duo
