Ars Nova - Tootie Trio

Thursday, September 4 // 8:00 PM

Ars Nova Workshop Presents: Tootie Heath-Ethan Iverson-Ben Street Trio

$15 general admission

Ars Nova Workshop is thrilled to welcome back Philadelphia legend Albert “Tootie” Heath along with Ethan Iverson and Ben Street in what is sure to be a very memorable evening at the Philadelphia Art Alliance.

Tootie, of course, is the youngest member of one of the first families of jazz, the Heath Brothers. Along with bassist Percy and saxophonist Jimmy, the Philadelphia-raised drummer became a first-call player while still a teenager, backing up visiting New York artists like Lester Young and Thelonious Monk. An endlessly open musician, his playing is featured on a wide range of projects, from those of Lester Young and Ben Webster to the abstractions of Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell. His first album Kawaida is the only studio meeting between Don Cherry and Herbie Hancock. Throughout his professional career of over fifty years, Heath has remained a crucial link to the art of be-bop drumming.

Ars Nova - Ingrid Laubrock Quintet

Friday, September 5 // 8:00 PM

Ars Nova Workshop Presents: Ingrid Laubrock Quintet

$15 general admission

Ars Nova Workshop is proud to welcome the Ingrid Laubrock Quintet at the Philadelphia Art Alliance.

An award-winning composer and performer, Laubrock’s style “balances impulsive spontaneity with a structural cohesiveness that occasionally sounds surreal; each of her sophisticated pieces embodies its own distinctive sound world” (Point of Departure). This new group performs Laubrock's latest compositions, written specifically for this cast of hand-picked musicians, all of whom have established themselves as great improvisers and interpreters of creative new music alike.
