Jacam Manricks (Trio from NYC)

January 19, 2014 @ 7:30 am – 10:30 am
New York based saxophonist/composer Jacam Manricks mesmerized listeners during season one with his trio format (sax, bass, drums), a unique format which allows space and freedom for melodic lines and improvisation to fly freely.  This time Manricks will be joined by drummer extraordinaire Clarence Penn (Wynton Marsalis, Betty Carter, Michael Brecker & Maria Schnieder) and outstanding Canadian bassist Jim Vivian (Dave Liebman, Kenny Wheeler) presenting original music from Manricks’ latest album ‘Cloud Nine’, among other offerings.

“.a potent, swinging chemistry.soothing, harmonically rich.a stellar improviser.(an) impassioned performance.”

                                                            Bill Milkowski Jazz Times Magazine 10/19/12

“His artistry possesses old-soul provenance, (with) a haunting, elegiac quality. A superb job.”
