Reflections: A Tribute to the Tenors
With “Reflections: A Tribute to the Tenors”, Gabric presents an homage to three of the most influential tenor saxophonists of all times; John Coltrane, Eddie Harris, and Joe Henderson. The primary focus of Reflections lies the interpretation of original compositions stemming from the minds of the three tenor legends. The reinterpretation of standards and originals, is one of the hallmark features of the Jazz tradition. The originals serve as a mirror on which the experience of the contemporary artist is reflected and ultimately heard in conjunction with the memory of other interpretations. Despite recently winning a Jazz Composer’s award from the American Society of Composers, Gabric focuses on material from other writers, and merely reshapes the concert experience with tasteful and slight reworkings of some of the originals. A secondary aim is the presentation of lesser-known originals, which deserve wider recognition and appreciation. In sum, Reflections will be a swinging, feel-good, and thoughtful, musical expression of Gabric’s reverence and gratitude towards three of the idiom’s unchallenged masters.
