Red 5 : Twin Cities fans of inventive jazz have enjoyed witnessing the evolution of Red 5, led by bassist extraordinaire Chris Bates. And it really was a quintet when first conceived about 10 years ago and when the band released its first recording in 2013. Yet one of the delights of this ensemble is its expanding cast and somewhat fluid nature. The anchor, of course, is leader Chris Bates, who has brought together a septet for this headliner performance. Expect suprise new compositions and favorites from the “New Hope” CD. It’s a wall of sound, groove, and power with face-melting solos by these Minnesota Jazz favorites.

PLAID ON PLAID is a Minneapolis based group that focuses on pushing improvised music into free and new territories. This includes blending into different genres, such as Folk, Rock, and Hip Hop with tailored arrangements, originals, and uncharted set lists.
