SIM Faculty Concert

by

Mainstream classes aren’t the only way to learn jazz, and Ralph Alessi’s “search and discover” MO seems to be an engaging trajectory for would-be adventure mavens. Tonight, the trumpeter grabs up a handful of skilled buds from the School of Improvised Music and shakes the standard way of thinking. From saxophonist Ravi Coltrane to drummer Gerald Cleaver, they’re all well-grounded dudes who like to fly high.

Wed., Aug. 5, 9 & 10:30 p.m., 2009
