JAZZ | Lucian Ban and Alex Harding

by

comment

Transylvanian pianist Lucian Ban has some of the fastest fingers a keyboard is ever likely to encounter. Of course that would mean nothing if Ban didn't somehow hit all the right notes in his stunning solos. Detroit-born Alex Harding has a similar command of the baritone sax, coaxing cascades of raspy runs out of the large instrument. When Ban and Harding hit the stage at the Bop Shop the combination of sounds produced should live up to the duo's name: Somethin' Holy.

Lucian Ban and Alex Harding perform as Somethin' Holy on Saturday, April 21, at Bop Shop Records, 1460 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $20 general; $10 students. 271-3354; bopshop.com; lucianban.com.
