Tracing the powerful musical impact of saxophone icons Kenny Garrett and Branford Marsalis, the Lars Haake Quintet brings a fresh take on contemporary bop to the stage of Zinc Bar. From high energy combustions to sensitive dark ballads, the music draws in the audience with intensity and intimacy.
German-born alto- and soprano saxophonist Lars Haake, who has appeared and recorded amongst others with the greats Kenwood Dennard, Hiram Bullock, and James Genus, studied saxophone with Vincent Herring and Bill Evans.
