Concert Listings Roundup #120

You can read more about why I'm doing listings here. Long story short: This curated and decidedly non-comprehensive list contains nothin' but shows that I am going to/would go to if I had more time.

Gig of the week:

Somewhere There presents (feat. Paul Newman with Heather Segger and Karen Ng [Duo Compositions CD release!]) / Array Space 2015-10-27 (Tuesday) [FB event]

Saxophonist Paul Newman is one of the quiet stalwarts of the current group at Somewhere There. His work as a composer tends more toward contemplative investigation than barn-on-fire dashing-about — as a saxophone player, he may well be at the opposite pole of a spectrum defined at one end by, say, the reed-shredding extroversion of Mats Gustafsson or Peter Brötzmann. That doesn't make the textures and topographies that Newman investigates any less exciting, and now he's following up an excellent album of solo pieces with the release of his Duo Compositions. At this celebration, as on the album, he'll be joined by Heather Segger (trombone) and Karen Ng (sax). Expect to hear the two pieces that make up the album, and perhaps something new as well.
