The Zachary Bornheimer Quintet is a powerhouse with extreme flexibility.  The group, originally formed in the beginning of 2015 as a vehicle for “The Emotional Suite,” came forth from the band assembled for a recital Zachary Bornheimer gave in early 2014.  The concept behind The Zachary Bornheimer Quintet is to play music at the highest level possible, but to remove genre restrictions.  “The Emotional Suite,” a perfect example of the dexterity of the group to balance on the edges of genres, pushes into the Avant-garde and Fusion sub-genres of jazz, but can be described as “modern classical music performed by jazz quintet.”  The music of the group is primarily written by Bornheimer (the tenor saxophonist and leader), but could be believably attributed to any member of the group as the most consistent sound of The Zachary Bornheimer Quintet is balance, leaving no instrument relegated to a subservient position.  The group performs with an emotional ferocity that compliments the musical meditations it presents.

The members of the group have, separately and together, toured internationally with the University of South Florida Jazztet and, from 2012-2015, played with the USF Jazztet in Italy, France, and England, at various festivals (including the Umbria Jazz Festival, Jazz à Vienne, Birmingham Jazz Festival, and the Wigan Jazz Festival).

Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit

7 pm doors 7:30 show.

$10-$20 suggested donation. Please also bring food or wine to share.

Large Unit is twelve Nordic musicians led by the high-energy phenom drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. Ensemble musical motifs with alternately elegiac, squelchy, and emphatic improvisations are interlocked in a shifting, sonic poetry. It’s a jazz big band if you can agree that the crunchy, tabletop electronics of Lasse Marhaug, an accordion, and two bassists who veer into Post-Punk territory can coexist with the traditions of the Swing. Countenance these elements colliding with your Ellington or Gil Evans or not, this is an exemplar Civic Minded 5 spectacle.
