Melissa Aldana Quartet

October 27 @ 7:30 pm

“With 12 Stars, Aldana puts all of her colourful sonic and emotional textures on display “

– All Music

Melissa Aldana established herself as a creative force to be reckoned with from an early age. She was born in Santiago, Chile, and grew up in a musical family as a third-generation saxophonist.

Aldana was the first female instrumentalist to win the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition, surpassing her father who was a semi-finalist in 1991.

Her latest contemplative and emotive album 12 Stars is powerful statement from the signature saxophonist and her highly talented band.

Inspired by the arcs and nuances of tarot, 12 Stars features a series of tributes to moments of challenge and triumph in Aldana’s New York life. It firmly captures her “bold harmonies and attention-grabbing solos” – Jazzwise

She’s a story-teller and an improvisor with a deeply meditative interpretation of jazz language and vocabulary.

Special guest opening performance from Jo Lawry & Dan Tepfer, which is sure to be rich with playfulness, virtuosity, deep connection and surprises.
