Jazz At Atlas Presents
Karen Borca Quartet
Saturday, October 5, 8 pm
"Ms. Borca is one of jazz's very few bassoonists, and her solo style owes a lot to the modern tenor-saxophone tradition. But the tone of the bassoon makes Ms. Borca's cascading arpeggios and clear high notes sound more plaintive and quizzical than they would on a saxophone." — Jon Pareles, New York Times
We are honored to present the innovative, criminally under-recognized bassoonist Karen Borca. With decades of experience in the ensembles of such major artists as Cecil Taylor, Jimmy Lyons, William Parker among many others, Ms. Borca leads a thrilling quartet of veteran creative musicians, including Warren Smith on vibes, Hilliard Greene on bass and Jackson Krall on drums.
The Karen Borca Quartet will perform in the gallery at Atlas Studios, located at 11 Spring St. in Newburgh NY
Tickets will be $25 at the door and $20 in advance — advance tickets are on sale now at:
