Steve Coleman

Crazed counterpoint and cool kinetics are the essence of the bandleader's now-venerable and still-novel approach to improv. The jabs that are thrown between trumpeter Jonathan Finlayson and saxophonist Coleman on the new Functional Arrhythmias sound like they're coming from boxers determined to land their next combination of punches. It's a landscape of splintered grooves and darting horns, and on stage, the action can be both inviting and bewildering.
June 19-20, 8:15 & 9:30 p.m., 2013
