Composers Saxophone Quartet at The Green Room - Saturday June 20th at 8pm

Saturday, June 20, is looking like a great day for jazz in Somerville. The SAC's Joe's Jazz & Blues Festival line-up looks incredible! For those looking to keep it going and move inside at the end of the day, I am delighted to present The Composers Saxophone Quartet at The Green Room (62 Bow St, Union Square) at 8pm that evening.

The quartet features Kathy Olson on baritone sax, Allan Chase on alto and soprano sax, Rick Stone on alto, and Sean Berry (who will appear with the great Makanda Project at Joe's earlier in the day) on tenor. So glad to have this foursome of stellar reeds players for the first show under the new Mandorla Music Series moniker (this is the series known until now as Jazz at The Green Room).

Leader Kathy Olson says, "Playing with other saxes without a rhythm section is like nothing else. You can hear everyone’s sound so clearly and the nuances are not missed. It’s like a living, breathing organism we bring to life as a group. The mission of the CSQ is to make the best of this special instrumentation. We perform original compositions and/or arrangements by our favorite local composers as well as by members of the ensemble. For jazz musicians it’s a different challenge to write something that will support an improvising soloist without a standard rhythm section."

Tix are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Advance tix and more info about the series are at
