The Charlie Haden’s Liberation Music Orchestra featuring Carla Bley concert is cancelled due to flight cancellations because of thunder storms in New York. The Bad Plus will be performing instead on the TekSavvy Main Stage at 8:30 pm rather than at the NAC Studio at 7pm.

Pre-purchased tickets to the Bad Plus at the Studio will be honoured at Confederation Park.

The Bad Plus The Bad Plus
The Bad Plus The Bad Plus has standard instrumentation for a jazz trio—Ethan Iverson on piano, Reid Miles playing bass, and Dave King behind the drums. However, their career, repertoire and well-defined sound during the past 17 years has been quite unconventional. Iverson’s cool, knowing touch on the keyboard is abetted by Miles’ stalwart, pulsing tones and offset by King’s often ferocious rhythms. They have covered radio hits by bands such as Nirvana, Tears for Fears, Aphex Twin and the Pixies, but also have recorded their own version of Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” and revisited fabled “free-jazz” luminary Ornette Coleman’s classic album, Science Fiction. Being encyclopedic in their range and walking the thin line between ironic references and earnest celebrations, they became the first post-modern instrumental group popular among millennials. Initially jazz purists resisted, but now everyone digs The Bad Plus.
Sammy Miller Congregation Sammy Miller Congregation
Sammy Miller Congregation Originally from Los Angeles, drummer Sammy Miller likes to say his band is on a mission to “bring art back to the people” by playing music music that feels good and uplifts listeners. Miller put together The Congregation—Sam Crittenden, trombone, Ben Flocks, tenor sax, Alphonso Horne, trumpet, David Linard, piano, and John Snow, bass—after graduating from The Juilliard School in New York City. The band’s members are among the leading young players in the city, with credits that include Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman and Jason Moran, and the group has won a following for its frequent late-night dance sessions at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Charismatic, hard-swinging and relentlessly upbeat, Sammy Miller and The Congregation display an infectious love of music that is loose and lighthearted.
Red Hook Soul Red Hook is a working-class neighbourhood of Brooklyn which in the 1920s was the world’s busiest freight port, but by the 1990s was labeled “one of the worst neighbourhoods in the United States.” It was the setting of the Marlon Brando movie On The Waterfront and Hubert Selby's gritty novel Last Exit in Brooklyn, but in recent years its lofts and warehouses have been gentrified. Local musicians like Canadian-born saxophonist Michael Blake have their own studios, storefronts, and a low-key jazz festival. Red Hook Soul stays true to its origins as a bar band, though, playing with the spunk and backbeat to keep drinkers happy. Blake’s lines on soprano and tenor horns surge over and through the slough of two guitars, keyboards, electric bass, percussion and drums, as if leading a conga line, because that’s exactly what he wants: You to stand up, get down, wiggle and shake.
Nomadic Massive Nomadic Massive
Nomadic Massive Montreal supergroup NOMADIC MASSIVE launched back in June their much anticipated 3rd album, THE BIG BAND THEORY. NOMADIC MASSIVE is an incredible stage behemoth that has seen a fascinating evolution since its inception. With performances around the globe ranging from the Vancouver International Jazz Festival in British Columbia to the Rudolstadt Festival in Germany, by way of the Festival International de Louisiane and the Grand Performances in Los Angeles, the band has made its mark as an essential Canadian band. A vast polyglot work (5 languages), it stands somewhere between the rebellious and suave rhythms of seventies soul, the crossbred sound of contemporary cosmopolitan cities and the sharp and vivid approach of avant-garde rap. The collective delivers an unbounded hip-hop that skillfully combines live instrumentation with sampling and a wide range of vocals.
