Fairfield University’s Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts presents ACS: Allen, Carrington, Spalding, three of the most important female instrumentalists in the jazz world today, in concert at 8 p.m., Saturday, October 5, 2013.
Consisting of Geri Allen on piano, Terri Lyne Carrington on drums, and Esperanza Spalding on bass and vocals, the trio formed after working together on Carrington’s Grammy® Award -winning album “The Mosaic Project.” In a performance that marked the ACS’ debut at New York City’s Village Vanguard, The Village Voice remarked, “the set’s expressionistic push-pull turned out to be a show of jazz fealty as disorienting as it was riveting.” Elegant, experimental, and unquestionably bold, ACS: Allen, Carrington, Spalding stretches the boundaries of a small jazz ensemble and revels in the art form.
Support for this concert comes from Bank of America and media sponsors Venü magazine and WPKN (89.5 FM).
Tickets are $55, $40, $30.
