The Milk Factory (cd-release) / Broken Shadows with Tim Berne & Chris Speed
At a time of murderous tempos, the Milk Factory sextet from Ghent offers a moment to catch your breath. They will be performing their debut album.
Broken Shadows brings together four American greats in a very personal tribute to several of their influences, who include Ornette Coleman and Charlie Haden.
"The band’s existence is due to the easy camaraderie between Berne and Speed, the nearly lifelong musical conversation that Bad Plus bandmates King and Anderson have enjoyed, and the multiple connections they have with the now deceased jazz masters whose music they’ll explore." Straight.com
Promoters are billing the upcoming Vancouver debut of Broken Shadows as a tribute to the great jazz composer Ornette Coleman—and, in a way, it is.
