Ben Allison & Think Free

Ben Allison & Think Free

Oct 25, 8:00pm - Oct 25, 11:00pm

Cafe CODA
1224 Williamson st.
Madison, WI  53703 Map

Ben and his group Think Free focus on melody, groove and texture in equal measures, engaging in the kind of group interplay that has become a hallmark of Ben’s style. Their first three albums, Cowboy Justice, Little Things Run the World, & Think Free each topped the jazz radio charts in the US (often remaining in the top ten for several months), and their latest,Layers of the City, has been met with overwhelming critical acclaim. These albums showcase Ben’s creative use of orchestration to create a sound that’s cinematic in scope, while leaving plenty of room for spontaneous improvisation.

Ben Allison – Bass
Rudy Royston – Drums
Steve Cardenas – Guitar
Shane Endsley – Trumpet

Executive Tea Set

Executive Tea Set

Oct 26, 8:00pm - Oct 26, 11:00pm

Cafe CODA
1224 Williamson st.
Madison, WI  53703 Map

CODA takes great pride in presenting the performances of the most inspired artists of this area, showcasing the best regional Jazz combos and ensembles.

Executive Tea Set formed at a time in history just before it was unfortunate to be associated with the word “tea.” Right, you know what I’m talking about. The lads carried on for a number of years building momentum, creating a body of work, and performing in the upper midwest, but then decided to lay low, performing only sporadically. Now they’re back in full force with their inimitable style, humor, and grace. Original music of a jazz variety carries the day, penned by the members of the group themselves, with occasional masterworks from one jazz luminary or another. Michael, Mark, and Brad are psyched to welcome newest member Paul Dietrich on trumpet. Paul brings his unique panache, and subtle bluster, spurring the band into unknown universes.

Featuring-
Paul Dietrich, trumpet
Mark Siegenthaler, Piano
Bradley Townsend, Bass
Michael Brenneis, Drums
