Colin Stetson

Colin Stetson and Arcade Fire's Sarah Neufeld are wrapping up a tour together that hit Glasslands Tuesday night (4/3). A video from the show is below.

Now both musicians will team up as part of the "Alone Together" tour - An Evening of Solo Works - with Gregory Rogove (Devendra Banhart, Priestbird, Megapuss) and Billy Martin (Medeski Martin & Wood), though Colin Stetson will NOT be on the first few dates of the tour that stars in Brooklyn at Littlefield on Saturday (4/7) and also hits Le Poisson Rouge on April 10. Tickets for the Littlefield show (no Stetson) and the LPR show (no Stetson) are on sale now.

To quote a tour description:

Neufeld will present her unique and vibrant solo violin pieces, Martin will perform his impressive array of spontaneous percussion/drum set compositions, Stetson will perform his spell-binding solo bass saxophone work, and Rogove will play his minimalist, solo piano pieces, from his recently released PIANA album (Knitting Factory Records).
All tour dates, the live Stetson video, and video of Sarah playing with Pulp in 2011, below...

"Colin Stetson was crazy good at Glasslands. Like putting Ornette Coleman under a powerful microscope and throwing him off the jazz deep end." Liam A

I am a huge fan of both Coleman and Stetson and I find that quote to be completely uneducated and absolute crap. I guess when you use 'crazy good' as a means to express your excitement, we can't really expect too much.

On another note, If you have a chance to see Colin Stetson perform live, DO IT!! His technique is astonishing!

"Like putting Ornette Coleman under a powerful microscope and throwing him off the jazz deep end."

There used to be a thing called music journalism. Now there are just nonsensical tweets.

There's a bitch in Arcade Fire? No wonder why that band sucks. Would still hit it when drunk.

I think I disagree with that Ornette quote but it also kind of makes no sense.

Ok, that quote is so f--king stupid and makes absolutely NO sense!!! Any idiot can download an album for free and think they're cool by having it on their iPod, but has this person actually EVER listened to Ornette Coleman??! Hey Liam A, stop tweeting and start learning....loser!
