Lucas Gillan's Many Blessings

When: Tue., March 2, 9:30 p.m. 2010

Lucas Gillan's Many Blessings is trumpet player Marquis Hill (Dee Alexander, Willie Pickens), baritone saxophonist Jon Edwards (The Right Now, Mulligan Mosaics), bassist Darius Savage (Nicole Mitchell, Ernest Dawkins) and drummer Gillan, who composes and arranges the group's music. The trumpet/baritone sax front line and spare rhythm section make for a distinct, rough-edged sound. Stylistically, the group explores territory as diverse as free improvisation, through-composed modern jazz and bebop, touching down at many points in between.
