“Lew Tabackin combines gut instincts with a broad command of jazz styles.”
—The New York Times

Acclaimed Tenor Saxophonist Lew Tabackin brings his formidable trio to the Zinc Bar on Friday, May 31. He’s supported by pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Yasushi Nakamura, and drummer Mark Taylor.

Flutist and tenor saxophonist Lew Tabackin is an artist of astonishing vision. His electrifying flute playing is at once virtuosic, primordial, cross-cultural, and passionate. His distinctive tenor sax style includes the use of wide intervals, abrupt changes of mood and tempo, and purposeful fervor, all in the service of showing the full range of possibilities of his instrument – melodically, rhythmically, and dynamically. Without copying or emulating jazz greats of the past, Mr. Tabackin has absorbed elements into his style, ultimately creating his own sound and aura.

Showtimes are at 7:30 pm & 9:00 pm. Tickets: $25 advance / $30 day of show. For more info call (212) 477-9462 or visit
