Legacy of the Tenor Saxophone with the Peter Sommer Quartet

Wed. 15 May, 2024 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Peter Sommer is joined by Ben Markley, piano, Matt Smiley, bass, and Dru Heller and Alejandro Castano, drums for an evening of music by and for the great tenor saxophonist legacy of the hard bop era and beyond, including influences such as Dexter Gordon, Johnny Griffin, Sonny Rollins, Hank Mobley, Eddie Harris, and John Coltrane. Featuring classics from the Blue Note and Prestige catalogs, as well as other gems off the beaten path. Join us for a brilliant night of swing, grace, power and soul!

Saxophonist Peter Sommer has contributed his energetic and graceful playing and creative spirit to a wide variety of musical projects ranging from mainstream bebop to classic and contemporary concert music to avant-garde improvisations at venues across the nation and around the world. Peter has released six albums as a leader. His latest release, Soulful Songs and Spirits (2022), features his working septet of Front Range jazz masters playing original arrangements and compositions inspired by legends of the art form.
