The fifth anniversary season of Firehouse 12’s Fall Jazz Series rolls on tonight with two sets from acclaimed drummer/composer Matt Wilson‘s longstanding quartet in celebration of its new CD, That Gonna Leave A Mark (Palmetto).
The group features Andrew D’Angelo (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), Jeff Lederer (clarinets and saxophones) and Chris Lightcap (acoustic and electric bass).
“That’s Gonna Leave a Mark has an up-close vivacity—not to mention a Sly Stone shout-out—that makes you salivate for a chance to hear the Matt Wilson Quartet live,” writes the New Haven Advocate‘s Christopher Arnott.
“Firehouse 12 is a perfect place to connect with the band and its music because of the intimacy of the venue and its excellent acoustics,” adds the Hartford Courant‘s Richard Kamins.
