comment

Brooklyn-based saxophonist Loren Stillman is one of the finest young hard-bop players on the scene today. He's enhanced the bands of Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Carla Bley, John Abercrombie, and others, and is now making a name for himself as a leader. When he brings his quartet to the Bop Shop, he'll be featuring the newest jazz star in town, Gary Versace on organ. Versace, who recently joined the faculty of the Eastman School of Music, has played with John Scofield, Al Foster, Maria Schneider, and many more. The all-star quartet will be rounded out by Nate Radley on guitar and drummer Jared Schonig.

The Loren Stillman Quartet with Gary Versace plays Tuesday, March 27, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $10 general donation; $5 students. 271-3354; bopshop.com; lorenstillman.com.
