Evan Cobb Quintet Plays At Barking Legs On Saturday

Friday, May 17, 2013

The Spring Jazz Fest at the Barking Legs Theatre is brought to a close Saturday, when the Evan Cobb Quintet comes down from Nashville to play the compositions of the great Horace Silver.  

The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, and $12 at the door.

Review for Evan Cobb:

Transplanted from NYC to Nashville, tenor saxophonist Evan Cobb is one of the forces pushing jazz forward in Music City. Last year, his quintet did a beautiful job highlighting the music of Art Blakey.

We invited him back to interpret the music of pianist and composer Horace Silver. The Steinway will be in the more than able hands of Bruce Dudley, and the rest of Evan's superb working and recording band will be on hand as well. Top shelf classic jazz.
