JC Sanford Quartet (Album Release Show)

Sept. 26
7:30 p.m.
$10-$15
Big Band, Instrumental, Jazz

Minnesota native JC Sanford established a glowing reputation in New York as a formidable, innovative trombonist, composer, conductor, and arranger, steeped in jazz and classical but also pushing boundaries. Since returning to his home state in 2016, Sanford has juggled many projects including this quartet with local jazz guitarist Zacc Harris and Bates bros Chris (bass) and JT (drums). Their debut, Keratoconus, showcases the band’s lithe improv prowess, as well as Sanford’s colorful writing and his whimsical humor, poking up in witty musical twists and song titles like “Selfish Shellfish.” ArtHaus opens.
