Selected date

Thursday February 20

Selected time

7:30 PM  –  10:30 PM

Laplante is an astonishing technician, extending possibilities of the tenor saxophone into new territories that encompass the avant-garde, contemporary jazz and classical, world music, and beyond, swirled into a transformative artistic experience. His mastery of circular breathing, multiphonics and harmonics is virtuosic, and he’s likely to produce dizzying torrents of sound—it’s music as primal therapy, musician as shaman. As a Pied Piper of improv and the moment, Laplante performances could lead audiences anywhere.
