This was not just the first-ever gig for the Society's Canadian splinter cell, it was my first gig in Montreal since August 2000. Thanks to all who came out to hear us -- you made this hit feel like a real homecoming. With any luck, it will not take another seven years for us to be back.
And of course, a huge thank-you to all of our supporters -- this tour would not have happened without your individual contributions.
Here are some reviews -- Juan Rodriguez in the Montreal Gazette:
The morning after, I was still stunned at what I'd heard - clearly some of the most ambitious and compelling sounds I've ever encountered in the past 40 years.
Point is: it’s great to see a jazz composer who is actively manipulating the jazz tradition and the incorporating other music to produce a truly fresh and unique sound.
[E]ven though I'd been listening to recordings of the New York band, hearing that music live had a different power and immediacy that I wasn't expecting.
Our winter 2008 tour is now complete, but it's not too late to help support this effort by making a tax-deductible donation.
