Rex Gregory Quintet at the Blue Nile

Tonight’s Open Ears music series will feature the up and coming saxophonist with a band featuring Ashlin Parker, Austin Johnson, Peter Harris, and Simon Lott.  Gregory has a new CD, “An End to Oblivion,” and the music I heard on WWOZ yesterday afternoon sounds very compelling.  Parker, a trumpeter and Johnson, a pianist, are two new faces around town that have gotten people talking.  Harris, the bassist, is the veteran of the group.  Lott, regular readers know, is a wonderfully expressive drummer.  It should be a great show.  If you can’t make it to the Blue Nile, tonight, which is free, but tip the band, it will be broadcast live at 90. 7 FM.
