As a leader of his own group, Artie released “Parallels” in 2005, “Currently Experiencing” in 2013, and most recently “Discern” in 2015.

Ornette Coleman Tribute Concerts @ Musikkii

Ornette

Thu, Jul.23 and Thu, Jul.30
8-11pm
Musikkii Cafe
73 Brock St.
Pay What You Can

In tribute to the late great Ornette Coleman, Inside Out will be playing two tribute concerts at Musikkii Cafe. These shows will be all Ornette’s music and largely focus on the earlier albums such as Tomorrow Is The Question and The Shape of Jazz To Come.

Inside Out is the brainchild of Benji Perosin (trumpet) and Jonathan Stewart (saxophones), with Paul Clifford (bass) and Rich Bannard (drums). The chord-less format of the band allows the horns much freedom in interpreting harmony and form, and there is much group improvisation.
