My husband Carl plays in Braxton's sextet. They will be playing Thursday through Sunday at the Iridium Jazz Club in NYC this week. This special group of musicians is bringing Braxton's unique and influential music to one of NYC's major jazz venues for the second year in a row. If you're in the area, I strongly encourage you to check it out!
The core members of the group are:
Anthony Braxton, saxophones
Jessica Pavone, viola and violin
Aaron Siegel, percussion
Carl Testa, bass and bass clarinet
Taylor Ho Bynum, cornet
Jay Rosen, tuba.
For this run, fabulous NYC guitarist Mary Halvorson will be joining the group, and there will be different guest musicians each night, including Caley Monohan-Ward, violin, Katie Young, bassoon, Kyle Brenders, saxophone, and Eric Paul, saxonphone.
More info about tickets and Braxton can be found here. The site does not mention that there are two shows each night. I believe they are at 8pm and 10pm. The Iridium also has good food.
