New York, New York -- Smoke Jazz Club, located at 2751 Broadway, New York, is proud to welcome The David Berkman Sextet, featuring Tim Armacost, Adam Kolker and Billy Drewes on saxophones, clarinet and bass clarinet, Chris Lightcap on bass and Kenneth Salters on drums from Friday, February 2 through Sunday, February 4. On each of these nights, esteemed bandleader, composer, arranger and pianist David Berkman, with the help of his talented and tightly-knit ensemble will take to the stage at 7:00pm, 9:00pm and 10:30pm. Both the 7:00pm and 9:30pm sets will have a $38 music charge and a $42 3-course dinner prix-fixe. The 10:30pm set will also have a $38 music charge, a $20 minimum and an optional $42 3-course dinner prix-fixe. There will also be a half-price student special on the music charge of any set on Sunday night (Feb. 4). Tickets are available here.

Since his first recording as a leader in 1996, Berkman has often returned to the instrumentation of three saxophones, piano, bass and drums. The present sextet was established in 2014 and led to the critically acclaimed 2015 recording, Old Friends and New Friends on Palmetto Records. Since that recording, which Berkman regards as one of the most significant musical steps taken in his decade-spanning career, the band has continued to develop and grow, and Berkman's writing for the group has matured. The band is incandescent and shape shifting, employing both open ended improvisation and tightly composed structures, orchestral timbres and blues influenced sax solis, the wind players and rhythm section intertwining and accompanying each other in fresh and unusual ways. The band will premiering music for their next Palmetto release due in the fall of 2018. Don't miss it!
