Alto saxophonist Dmitry Baevsky “makes balls-to-the wall bop into something pretty” (Stereophile).
Returning to Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola after the release of the 2012 album The Composers, Dmitry Baevsky is here to demonstrate the ongoing relevance and irresistibility of straight-ahead jazz and bop. His takes on the works of such classic composers as Duke Ellington, Bud Powell, Ornette Coleman, and Horace Silver are hard swinging, as little compositional departure is needed to keep things interesting when the material is performed this well. With speed-of-light technical chops and exciting melodic ideas, Baevsky is more than capable of stealing the show, yet his ensembles always impress and share the spotlight. This will be an evening of expertly performed and—just as important—lovingly selected jazz.
