Tony Barba Quartet

  • North Street Cabaret 610 North Street Madison, WI, 53704 United States (map)

Saxophonist Tony Barba operates in several different circles in and out of the Madison jazz scene. In addition to his own solo explorations with looped, effect-heavy sax, Barba plays in afro-Peruvian jazz ensemble Golpe Tierra, the Youngblood Brass band, and the Johannes Wallmann Quartet, among others. For this quartet appearance, Barba collaborates with three heavily involved musicians from Madison and Milwaukee. Trumpeter Jamie Breiwick can be heard shredding in Milwaukee's Lesser Lakes Trio and leads his own quartet, which includes Barba. Two local performers and educators—bassist Nick Moran (The New Breed, Sinister Resonance, Golpe Tierra) and percussionist Matt Endres (Old Style Sextet)—play here as well, performing originals and standards in the quartet. —Emili Earhart
