Save the date: Respect at BAMcafé on Mar 26!
We’re very pleased to announce that We the people of The Respect Sextet will be playing a show at BAM on Saturday, March 26th at 9pm as part of the BAMcafé Live series! It will be a real humdinger, without a doubt. And as if its humdingerness wasn’t enough, the show is FREE!
About Respect, BAM sez:
Capable of conjuring exuberant joy, crackling wit, and studied introspection in a few measure’s time, powerhouse improv outfit The Respect Sextet is a virtuosic juggernaut of a band. Horns, keyboards/electronics, bass, and drums court toy radios, homespun noise makers, and other ephemera under the pretense that every sound and style—from Sun Ra and Stockhausen to Mentos jingles—has a place. Accordingly, they won’t apologize if a paean to Louis Armstrong or Lennie Tristano emerges from a blistering thicket of electro-acoustic free improvisation. They won’t need to anyway, since nothing will seem righter at the time.
