Tchicai / Kohlhase / Fewell Trio Announces Northeast Tour

Legendary Danish-born saxophonist John Tchicai returns to New England in December for four performances with a newly-formed trio featuring veteran Boston-based musicians, saxophonist Charlie Kohlhase and guitarist Garrison Fewell. This tour marks the first-ever performances by this trio and their repertoire will feature original music by all three musicians.

Best known for his pioneering 1960's free jazz collaborations with musicians like Albert Ayler and John Coltrane, Tchicai has worked with Kohlhase on projects like the Grammy® nominated Either/Orchestra's Across the Omniverse (Accurate, 1996) and the Tchicai/Kohlhase Quintet's Boston Music Award-winning Life Overflowing (Nada, 1999). The latter prompted the All Music Guide to call the pair "two of the most lyrical saxophonists the avant-garde ever spawned." Tchicai and Fewell have performed together in Europe and their new co-led quintet recorded a forthcoming release this past summer. AllAboutJazz named Fewell's latest release, October's Red Door Number 11 on Splasc(H) Records, a Publisher's Pick, calling it "an unqualified success."
