Cornelia Street Cafe presents a special concert featuring the All Star TUBA Project - featuring Alex Harding, Bruce Williams , Lucian Ban, Derrek Phillips and special guest star Bob Stewart. A working band for more than a year the group will present music to be recorded for their upcoming album on CIMP Records. Founded in 2004 by long time musical collaborators, Alex Harding and Transylvanian born pianist Lucian Ban the group brings together some of the most creative voices in jazz today to form a unique ensemble built around the voices of alto & bari saxes and tuba. Benefiting immensely from the extraordinaire talent of Mr. Bob Stewart who can play the tuba in any way possible, the group plays highly charged original music that doesn't sound like anything else you've heard before. Pulsating blues, new orleans riffs, post bop lines, funk grooves and free jazz outbursts can be found in their music but the sound of the group goes well beyond all those to become a voice of its own. playing original music the four musicians have to be seen and heard to get the full picture" Pianist Lucian Ban has recorded two albums under his name with fiery bari sax player Alex Harding and his quintet featuring drum legend Barry Altschul was voted one of the best shows of 2003 by All About Jazz. He will bring his eastern european influences to the music. Bruce Williams - currently the newest and youngest member in the famous world Saxophone Quartet - is considered one the best altoists on the scene today and he's equally at home playing post hard bop and avantgarde. Anchoring the whole thing one of best drummers today - Mr. Derrek Phillips" Cover $12
