Jimmy Greene Preview In The New Haven Advocate


Saxophonist/composer Jimmy Greene’s CD release performance at Firehouse 12 tomorrow night is previewed in this week’s issue of the New Haven Advocate.

Edward Dunn writes, “Besides his performance credentials, Greene is a respected composer, and his composer’s keen sense of structure clearly influences his playing. His lines go way beyond a simple sequence of notes, each phrase integrally related to the next. Sure, that’s what all great players aim for, but not many can balance that formal rigor with the requisite soul. Greene does.”

Please note a last minute change of personnel in Greene’s quartet for this gig, which will now feature Danny Grissett (piano), Luques Curtis (bass) and Ralph Peterson (drums).
