Broken Shadows with Tim Berne, Chris Speed, Reid Anderson & Dave King
Sunday, September 22, Joe Henderson Lab
6:00pm & 7:30pm
Named for one of Ornette Coleman’s most evocative compositions, this all-star project honors the Coleman legacy along with the music of Coleman’s fellow Fort Worth native reed players Dewey Redman and Julius Hemphill, featuring the wildly inventive saxophonists Tim Berne and Chris Speed, and the Bad Plus rhythm section of bassist Reid Anderson and drummer Dave King. Debuting as a band in January 2017 for the Konceptions Music Series at Brooklyn’s Korzo, the band is a remarkably balanced vehicle for performing Coleman’s work, approaching it with fearless experimentation, deep grooves, and wicked humor.
