Melissa Aldana Quartet
October 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm EDT
A rising tenor saxophonist taking the jazz world by storm, Melissa Aldana leads a high octane quartet featuring: Michael King, piano; Pablo Menares, bass; Tommy Crane, percussion. Originally from Chile, Aldana broke into the New York jazz scene in 2009. She quickly asserted herself as one of the most esteemed tenor saxophonists of her generation. In 2013, Aldana was recognized as the first female instrumentalist and the first South American ever to win the prestigious Thelonious Monk Competition. Since then, she has continued to raise the bar and innovate new sounds from traditional jazz forms.
