Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group
In a rare Boston appearance, New York-based pianist, composer, educator, and author Lewis Porter combines forces with saxophonist and composer Phil Scarff in this dynamic new quartet. From jazz standards to contemporary treatments of traditional Indian classical fare, and from melodic originals to free-wheeling improvisation, East emerges from West and the audacious emerges from the contemplative.
