Live from New Orleans
Jun 1, 2012
The striking intensity and skillfulness of Brad Walker's saxophone playing set him apart as one of the great up and coming musicians in New Orleans. Brad is making a name for himself performing in Eric Lindell's band as well as leading his own jazz quartet. He is also known as a regular contributor to the Open Ears music series, a weekly gathering where the city's best improvisers explore the limits of experimental free jazz.
Redrawblak is the moniker for Brad's solo music, consisting of richly textured saxophone loops and emotive improvised solos. In the second set Brad is joined by the one and only Simon Lott, who contributes his eclectic approach to drumming and electronic effects to create a buzzing and agressive futuristic soundscape. Listeners that enjoy having their expectations challenged will find this sonic journey particularly rewarding.
The Open Ears music series is free and open to the public every Tuesday upstairs at the Blue Nile beginning at 10pm. Because there is no cover charge, musicians rely entirely upon the generous support of listeners to earn a living. In keeping with the Open Ears philosophy, listeners may download this recording with any monetary contribution, small or large. Thanks for listening, and enjoy.
