Saxophonist Bluiett comes home Saturday and brings a trifecta for us all

 
 
Our town is in for a treat this weekend as Brooklyn, Illinois native and world-renowned baritone saxophonist Hamiet Bluiett performs on Saturday, November 26, in Soulard.

Bluiett, a founding member of the World Saxophone Quartet who frequently plays high-profile gigs in New York, all across Europe and even in Asia, will be joined by violinist Billy Bang and
percussionist Kahil El'Zabar for a show called Trifactor.

For a town like St. Louis, which is known the world over for its rich jazz and blues heritage, a show like this, with such quality practitioners of improvisational and "avant-garde" jazz, is unfortunately rare and should therefore not be missed. Do not miss this opportunity.

Tickets are only $20 at the door. Shows start at 8 and 10:30 p.m. at the Mad Art Gallery, 2727 S. 12th Street. Seating is limited so come early. This show is sponsored by Gallery Urbis Orbis.
