Heritage/Evolution 3 features the PRISM Quartet with Dave Liebman and Greg Osby In world premiere performances of new works by Liebman and Osby.

Since the saxophone’s invention by the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax in 1840, it has captured the imaginations of artists and audiences worldwide. Heritage/Evolution charts fresh musical territory, drawing on the saxophone’s cross-cultural heritage to blend jazz with everything from Western and South Indian classical music to Romani and Latin American folkloric music.

The program will include a post-concert talk with Liebman and Osby, moderated by Tom Moon, a contributor to NPR’s All Things Considered whose work has appeared in Rolling Stone, GQ, Blender, Spin, and Vibe.
