Bay Area Native, saxophonist Teodross Avery returns Oakland’s Sound Room, where ‘After the Rain: A Night For Coltrane’ was recorded LIVE earlier this year! He’ll be dropping another jaw-dropping performance with his band in celebration of his much anticipated album release! Vinyl & CDs available at the show!
In the beginning there was John Coltrane. Growing up in a family that listened to a vast and global array of music, Teodross Avery experienced an epiphany at 13 when he first heard Tranes epochal harmonic steeplechase Giant Steps. Taking up the tenor saxophone, he emerged in the mid-1990s as one of the most powerful young voices on the scene, with two critically hailed releases for GRP/Impulse! Averys long and productive journey has taken him down many musical paths, from gigs with jazz legends and hip hop stars to sessions with NEA Jazz Masters and platinum pop albums. With his Tompkins Square label debut After The Rain: A Night for Coltrane, Avery has found his way back home, reasserting himself as a supremely eloquent exponent of the post-Trane jazz continuum. Recorded live at Oakland’s Sound Room.
