The Casey Berman Quartet
THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN CANCELED
Jazz saxophonist Casey Berman is quickly rising in the ranks of the New York scene. Having played at such prestigious venues as the Blue Note, the Kennedy Center, the Jazz Gallery, Cornelia Street Café, and Dizzy's Club in Lincoln Center, Berman has become well-known as a relevant and active voice as a tenor saxophonist and composer. He last thrilled audiences at Brandon Music with his group Swim Team. On April 30, he will be joined by a band of New York musicians to perform new original music.
Berman is a jazz musician first and foremost, writing pieces influenced by many of the genre's most dynamic composers, including Paul Motian, Eric Dolphy, and Thelonious Monk. Due to a budding interest in both electronic music and classical music, and the recent acquisition of a bass clarinet, his music has become more explorative and diverse in nature. Sometimes it is more structured and sometimes more open-ended, but as Berman explains, “the music is committed to keeping an open dialogue on stage, with the focus of the music shifting from band member to band member.”
During his time at NYU and since graduating, Berman has studied with some of the most important improvisers on the scene, including Mark Turner, Lee Konitz, Bill McHenry and Ben Street. He is a part of an active group of improvising musicians, and hosts a concert series out of his apartment in Brooklyn. www.caseybermanmusic.com
