Set 1 - Anthony Cox - solo bass & cello:
Peter Madsen wrote that Cox is "open to all kinds of great music from around the world" and that "his bass sound is full of beauty and warmth and his ability to accompany and still add very creative ideas into whatever music he is playing is remarkable. He is equally comfortable playing chord changes with a Stan Getz or Kenny Wheeler or playing open music with a Dewey Redman or Geri Allen.
Set 2 - Framework:
Chris Olson(guitar), Chris Bates(bass) and Jay Epstein(drums&cymbals)
Formed in 1996 & uniting three of the best musical minds in the Metro, Framework (Chris Olson, guitar; Chris Bates, bass; Jay Epstein, drums) comes to Jazz Central. Among the trio is a wealth of experience in varied contexts, but with a common denominator of creative energy. Framework performs original music reflecting a wide range of moods and grooves. From floating ethereal balladry and Americana influenced swing to free form electronic soundscapes and deep powerful rock Framework covers lots of territory while staying grounded in their core group concept.
