Angrajazz to Host Miguel Zenón, Frank Kimbrough, Allan Harris

  I  

Angrajazz, which returns for its 21st edition Oct. 3-5, is set to host a confluence of European and American performers on Terceira Island off the coast of Portugal.

The first day of the festival will begin with the event’s namesake big band, Orquestra Angrajazz, directed by Pedro Moreira and Claus Nymark. Following that opening set, the Émile Parisien Sfumato Quintet, which issued a 2018 album on ACT with Wynton Marsalis as a guest, is set to perform. Friday finds another saxophonist, João Mortágua, leading his AXES ensemble, and that performance will be followed by pianist Frank Kimbrough—in a group that includes reedist Scott Robinson—working through the Thelonious Monk catalog.

On Saturday, vocalist Allan Harris fronts a quartet that counts bassist Nimrod Speaks in its ranks, before the Miguel Zenón Quartet closes out the weekend.
