Saxquest and Jazz St. Louis are teaming up to present a free performance and clinic by saxophonist Adam Larson (pictured) at 7:00 p.m. this Tuesday, May 24 at the Saxquest shop, 2114 Cherokee St on the south side.

Larson, 21, is a native of Bloomington, IL who, according to JSL director of education Phil Dunlap “has made quite a name for himself, picking up reed and mouthpiece endorsements from companies despite his age of 21." At age 19 he was described by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune as “ a player for whom the word 'prodigious' was coined." Now based in New York, Larson is touring the Midwest with the quintet he co-leads with trumpeter John Raymond. Guitarist Nils Weinhold, drummer Bastian Weinhold, and bassist Raviv Markovitz complete the group.

Admission to the event is free, and refreshments will be served. The event will be recorded by HEC-TV for telecast at a later date.

You can check out Larson and his quintet performing his original composition “Space" in the embedded video window below.
