Be­yond tra­di­tion: Chris Jonas

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS - — P.W.

Chris Jon brings his new trio to Gig Per­for­mance Space on Fri­day, Jan. 6. Ac­cord­ing to show ma­te­ri­als, the sax­o­phon­ist — with per us­sion­ist Will Dyar and bassist Rob Lund­berg — presents 75 min­utes of new com­po­si­tions that “will con­tain el­e­ments of a clas­sic jazz trio, but will be work­ing with col­ors and sounds out­side of the usual do­mains of tra­di­tional jazz, mix­ing el­e­ments that are chal­leng­ing, quirky, del­i­cate, weirdly groovy, poly­phonic, and a mix­ture of the dis­jointed and melodic.” Jonas has made mu­sic with the likes of Myra Melford, Fred Ho, An­thony Brax­ton, and Ce­cil Tay­lor — the last two since the late 1990s. Jonas is also on the board of Brax­ton’s Tri-Cen­tric Foun­da­tion and is ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Santa Fe-based Lit­tle­globe artist col­lec­tive. The Fri­day con­cert be­gins at 7:30 p.m. at Gig (1808 Sec­ond St.). Ad­mis­sion is $20, and you can check out www .gigsantafe.com for de­tails about this and other up­com­ing gigs.
