Created by Steve Coleman in the late 90s, The Council of Balance is a bold project for a big band. For the 20th anniversary of the saxophonist’s famous concerts at the Hot Brass de la Villette (now known as the Trabendo), Steve Coleman and his musicians present new compositions from the album Synovial Joints for a rare and breathtaking concert.
American saxophonist and composer Steve Coleman is one of the most influential creators in the history of jazz. Like Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Dave Holland, and other great jazz musicians, he invented a unique way of building and playing this musical genre.
This is just one of over 500 amazing jazz concerts available on medici.tv!
