SAXQUEST Free Concert Artist Series - TIA FULLER - Thursday 11/13/14
We’re incredibly excited to invite you out to the Saxquest shop this Thursday evening (7:30-9PM) for a very special FREE performance/clinic by Tia Fuller. Fuller has made a name for herself over the past 10 years as being one of the hardest hitting saxophonists on the New York scene and has clearly risen to the top of her generation of musicians. As a Mack Avenue recording Artist, Fuller is grounded in a jazz mode of expression that embraces both the classic and the contemporary sounds surrounding her. It’s no mistake that artists from Esperanza Spalding to Beyoncé include her instrumental voice and vision in their work. Fusing traditions, styles, and unafraid of genre boundaries, Fuller’s music transgresses the musical frontiers of today!
While having performed in a multitude of musical idioms, it’s the jazz quartet where Tia has focused her recordings as a leader. It’s this setting where she really shines, not only in her ability to play with a spell bounding modern lyricism, but also her ability to interact with the quartet, where all members of the ensemble are on an equal footing. It’s also this “jazz quartet” setting that you’ll hear Ms. Fuller in performance at Saxquest. She’ll be sharing the stage with St. Louis’s Phil Dunlap, Nathan Pence and Montez Coleman.
Thanks to everyone who continues to come out to our events and helps support our shop. If you haven’t been out for a while, I hope to see you this Thursday. Remember, it’s the enthusiasm that you show towards these events that motivates us to continue hosting more events in the future.
