For this performance at the Red Poppy, Chicago based cornetist Josh Berman has arranged music for a west coast version of his group Old Idea featuring Aram Shelton, Devin Hoff, Mark Clifford and Sam Ospovat. Devin Hoff will be visitng from LA. Writer Peter Margasak said in describing the music; “Old Idea also speaks to some influences that Berman doesn’t necessarily share with his peers: while they rarely look back further than the late 50s, he draws on prewar idioms, especially the early-jazz language of horn men like Ruby Braff and Rex Stewart.”
Josh Berman: cornet
Aram Shelton: alto saxophone
Mark Clifford: vibraphone
Devin Hoff: bass
Sam Ospovat: drums“Mr. Berman’s playing merges the textural style of Bill Dixon with old-fashioned melodic trumpeters in jazz from as far back as the ’20s. It’s a record with generous learning but no big attitude. There’s space in it, as well as harmonic mobility and gentle humor.” - Ben Raitliff, New York Times
