Of all the singers who have emerged in the last few decades, perhaps none fits the term "unique" better than Björk. The Icelandic vocalist's range covers everything from fragile, ethereal beauty to wonderfully crazy primal screams. Perhaps that's the reason Björk has inspired musicians in a variety of genres. The Institute for Creative Music, known for its workshops on improvisational jazz, will be exploring her work in the Björk Project. The group consists of some of Rochester's finest players: Nick Finzer (trombone), Nick Weiser (piano), Doug Stone (saxophone), Kyle Vock (bass), and Chris Teal (drums).
The Institute for Creative Music's Björk Project performs Saturday, November 11, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $15; $10 students. 737-0137; bopshop.com.
