"It's fair to say that [Lovano] is one of the greatest musicians in jazz history."
--Ben Ratliff, The New York Times
Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano has searched for new modes of artistic expression within the jazz idiom for over three decades, performing with many artists including Dr. Lonnie Smith, Bill Frisell, Bobby Hutcherson, Ed Blackwell, Dave Liebman, and Eric Harland. Mr. Lovano's recent recordings on Blue Note have featured James Weidman and Lionel Loueke. This performance at Wesleyan will be the world premiere of Joe Lovano Trio Fascination with bassist Peter Slavov, drummer Lamy Istrefi, and special guest vocalist Judi Silvano.
