discover jazz – day 5

Headlines only for now, it’s late – more coming later. For now:

– Tonight, 6:30pm at the Firehouse Gallery: Saxophone Colossos, a 1986 documentary (dir. by Robert Mugge). Many insights in here, including the thoughts that Rollins is a structured, non-self-indulgent, “Aristotelian” kind of player, and that his playing is “visual”. I’ll go deeper with this in the next update. Good stuff.

– Later, 8:30pm at the FlynnSpace: The Gerald Clayton Trio (Gerald Clayton, piano; Joe Sanders, bass; Justin Brown, drums). How to go from atmpospherically delicate to hard swingin’ and hard core and back again in the matter of a few bars. The balance of instruments was really good, and – those drums!

That’s it from Festival Overload central, g’night and we’ll talk again tomorrow.
