Comfort Music: Christoph Erb/Josh Berman/Jason Roebke

Friday | 03 May 2019
Comfort Station - 7:30pm

Comfort Station presents a one-off concert featuring Swiss saxophonist Christoph Erb, Josh Berman, and Jason Roebke.

Exploring sound and structure, harmony and disharmony. No wonder that this sounds… bulky, eruptive, at times brutal, at times irritating, seldom calm or soothing. Though, at least it’s never unspectacular, halfhearted or ill-considered.

With CHRISTOPH ERB on tenor and soprano saxophone and JOSH BERMAN on cornet and JASON ROEBKE on bass, they establish a double-entente based on the listening to the other, the exploration of the unknown and the vertigo of the moment.

Doors at 7:00 / Music at 7:30

Free and open to the public
