A chordless all-star lineup of northern musicians, the John Pope Quintet draws on the history of 60s jazz, hard bop and avant jazz, but with a modern sensibility grounded in the sounds of today’s European jazz scene. Open- hearted, quirky compositions and dynamic anything-goes improvisation, played with a hard- swinging groove and referencing everybody from Ornette Coleman to Tom Waits and Mingus to the Pixies. The John Pope Quintet kicks up a joyful racket full of rewards for the adventurous listener.
Make a night of it and reserve a table to eat in the CUBE café|bar.
