The strangely beautiful acoustics just outdoors in front of The Back Door makes for a special site for this 3 PM concert by Rova Saxophone Quartet. Performing new and almost-new pieces for sax quartet in preparation for Rova’s October tour to the Mideast and Midwest.
Think of the human voice in music. The most primal of instruments, it can melt you or move you to tears on the spot. Then it’s the saxophone, one-step removed from the human voice, and the next most powerful messenger in music. Johnny Hodges, Albert Ayler, Steve Lacy, Pharoah Sanders, Oliver Lake, King Curtis, Tim Berne, John Butcher – to name only a few of the many singular voices on the instrument who, with one short phrase or even one sound, can take your breath away, or excite and inspire you to great heights.
