JOSEPH SHABASON – 9:30pm
Toronto saxophonist and composer Joseph Shabason, who has worked with Artists including The War On Drugs and Destroyer, is solely pulling the thread left hanging by the marriage of minimalism and jazz in the previous century. His debut LP, Aytche (Western Vinyl, 2017), reveals this cross-pollination to be as fertile and captivating as ever, fitting as well – or better – into this decade as any other.
Anne (Western Vinyl, 2018), the second album By Shabason, is a tonal essay on degenerative illness. Across the nine vivid postcards of jazz-laden ambience that comprise the album, Shabason unwraps these difficult themes with great care and focus revealing the unseen aspects of degenerative diseases that force us to re-examine common notions of self, identity, and mortality.
