Tonight @ The Sage - JAN GARBAREK

Jan Garbarek is an ethereal saxophone player floating mistral-like Norwegian folk melodies into the contemporary jazz genre. The results are intense and often quite beautiful.
Imagine the music as the drifting smoke from a scented, exquisitly tailored caporal, becoming gradually entwined with the harsher emission from a hand carved briar loaded with St. Bruno Roughcut and you get an idea of what the end result could be like.
Of course in this day and age such an occurence is but a pipe-dream otherwise the tickets would have a Government Health Warning.
Garbarek's music is there for the taking tonight in The Sage's Hall One at 7:30 pm.
Unfortunately, I'm unable to make it so I'd appreciate any feedback from those who do attend.
Tickets are £23:50.
Lance.
