Joe Sorbara & Brodie West - [excerpt from first piece]

Although the local "jazz" festival is anticipated in some quarters, it seemed that too often there was no home there for adventurous and experimental creators. Thus, out of necessity, the TONE Festival was born to give these touring musicians a chance to connect with local audiences and artists. A collaboration between Burn Down the Capital's Tad Michalak, Ron Gaskin (a.k.a. Rough Idea) and Karen Ng and Daniel Pencer, the goal was to create shows that were rewarding for players and listeners alike. The festival also gave patrons eager to catch some big names from abroad a chance to be exposed to some of the local scene's top players, such as in this encounter between saxophonist Brodie West and percussionist Joe Sorbara. This even-handed duo effectively mixed Sorbara's clanging collection of bricabrac with West's groove-wiggles.
