Lars Haake Quartet

Tuesday, May 22
Tracing the powerful musical impact of saxophone icons Kenny Garrett and Branford Marsalis, the Lars Haake Quartet brings a fresh take on contemporary bop to the stage of Zinc Bar. From high energy combustions to sensitive dark ballads, the music draws in the audience with intensity and intimacy. German born alto- and soprano saxophonist Lars Haake, who has appeared and recorded amongst others with the greats Kenwood Dennard, Hiram Bullock and James Genus, studied saxophone with Vincent Herring and Bill Evans. His close collaboration with pianist Benito Gonzalez, who has appeared on Kenny Garrett's last three records, has given the quartet an unmistakable soulful edge.
