Greta Ruth + Brandon Wozniak $10
Friday, August 20, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Poem & tone. Guitar & voice. Language & harmony.
Song as a way to sit with, move through, and heal from experience.
Softness & dissonance. Reflection & dynamic stillness.
The tension of opposites & the alchemy of internal work.
One of Minnesota’s most exciting saxophonists. Brandon Wozniak returned to the twin cities in 2006 after six years in New York City and a six month stint in Shanghai, China. Wozniak studied music at Indiana University with David Baker and privately with Tom Walsh. Brandon performs regularly with Dave King’s(Bad Plus, Happy Apple drummer) Dave King Trucking Company with saxophonist Chris Speed, the Atlantis Quartet(City Pages Best Jazz Artist 2011, Star Tribune Best Jazz Artist 2012), Bryan Nichols Quintet, Chris Bates Red 5, Vector Families, Zacc Harris Group, Lars Larson’s Mancrush plus many other projects. Brandon has also performed with Eric Kamau Gravatt(Weather Report, McCoy Tyner), singer Nellie McKay, toured with the Tommy Dorsey Jazz Orchestra and shared the stage with Francisco Mela(Joe Lovano’s US Five), Steve Davis, David Berkman, Ben Wendel and Dennis Gonzalez. Brandon’s newest collaboration is a band called Acoustic Deathwish with the great bassist Anthony Cox and drummer Dave King. We are currently recording our first record and hope to tour as soon as it’s safe to do so.
