Vein is a very hot piano/bass/drums band, with “thrilling creativity” (Rolling Stone)””It grooves. It’s rubato. It’s fun.It’s ruminative. It’s exultant. Above all, it’s constantly surprising. It’s a treat” ( London Jazz). And guesting with them tonight is one of the giants of contemporary tenor sax playing, Rick Margitza. When he played in Miles Davis’ classic 80’s electric group he brought intelligence along with passion and power. He’s a throwback to Wayne Shorter, Michael Brecker and John Coltrane, all in one. It’s not surprising that he’s played in the bands of many greats – from McCoy Tyner to Chick Corea. Now he’s the Dexter Gordon of the 21st century – thriving in Bohemian Paris, and the great tenor sax-man on the European scene.
