In a career that spans nearly 30 years, bassist/composer Ben Allison has developed his own instantly identifiable sound, solidifying an international reputation as one of the leading voices of his generation. Known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies, Ben draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole.
On this night he's performing with Think Free, his stellar band composed of Steve Cardenas (guitar), Shane Endsley (trumpet) and Allan Mednard (drums), each prolific members of the New York jazz community in their own rights.
