About

Passin’ Thru Records presents the inaugural Passin’ Thru Music Festival, a series of performances curated by saxophonist and composer Oliver Lake, including both composed and improvised music by Oliver Lake’s Big Band and The Josh Evans Quintet on Sunday, October 16 followed by 10^32K and Trio 3 on Monday, October 17.

The Josh Evans Quintet is a straight-ahead yet adventurous group including a tight rotating cast of some of the world’s best musicians. For the past decade, Oliver Lake’s Big Band has served as one of Lake’s greatest achievements and most sophisticated compositional outlets. The band’s most recent recorded release, entitled Wheels, has been met with widespread critical acclaim.

Saxophonist and composer Oliver Lake's artistic vision remains daring, unique and uncompromising, maintaining his place as one of the preeminent saxophonists in the progressive jazz scene. Known for his work with his Organ and Big Band groups, Lake has collaborated with luminaries such as Myra Melford, Roscoe Mitchell, Vijay Iyer, Geri Allen, and others. Lake is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Mellon Jazz Living Legacy Award at the Kennedy Center, and Doris Duke Artist Award, and has received commissions from the Library of Congress.
