Aurora Nealand pays tribute tonight to the legendary clarinetist from New Orleans Sidney Bechet. Bechet is another jazz musician whose name deserves to be coupled with Armstrong as the greatest of the New Orleans Jazz players. Living for much of his latter career in Europe, noted Swiss Conductor Ernst Ansermet declared “The extraordinary clarinet virtuoso Bechet is an artist of genius!” Like Bechet, Aurora Nealand’s primary instrument is the soprano saxophone and she has been an established bandleader, composer and performer on the New Orleans music scene since she first arrived in 2005. Combining a “formal education” –a music composition degree from Oberlin Conservatory and training at the Lecoq School of Physical Theatre in Paris – with the “informal” experience of playing music in the streets and clubs throughout the northern Hemisphere, Nealand has emerged as an innovative, sensitive and daring music creator. Joining Aurora on stage will be acclaimed clarinetists /saxophonists Tom Fischer and James Evans to make this a truly special event. Fischer is one of the City's most sought-after clarinetists, performing everywhere from Preservation Hall to Carnegie Hall. Upcoming jazz star James Evans moved in 2013 to New Orleans to pursue his lifelong love of the city and its music. Since his arrival he has played with many local luminaries such as Leroy Jones, Steve Pistorius, Lucien Barbarin and Tim Laughlin.
