Steve Lehman Octet
Although his own music can come across as mathematically chilly on record, this composing alto saxophonist burns hot onstage. He's using this five-night run (offering two sets for the price of one) to polish some "very challenging" new material for an upcoming album. The rest of the Octet consists of Jonathan Finlayson (trumpet), Mark Shim (tenor sax), Tim Albright (trombone), Chris Dingman (vibes), Jose Davila (tuba), Drew Gress (bass), and Tyshawn Sorey (drums).
