Add to Calendar 2017-04-22 8:00 pm 2017-04-22 Tetraptych at The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts And Cultural Center Say: “TET-trup-tick:” a four-paneled painting where each panel can stand on its own. Grounded in the lineage of the modern jazz saxophone quartet, Tetraptych brings a breathing conversant quality to the music, where movement, playfulness, sensitivity, and deep groove are ever-present in an openhearted chemistry.

The band plays the music of pianist, composer and band leader Bert Seager, who has written tunes specifically to fit these musicians, their strengths and collaborative chemistry. The music prominently features New York City-based Hery Paz on tenor saxophone. Each one of his solos is imbued with a depth of purpose, a sense of patience and a willingness to venture into the unknown. This commitment reflects the essential inner resources that were required of him during his family’s harrowing emigration from Cuba and subsequent struggle here in the United States. Max Ridley, their upright bassist, makes the music dance while playfully breaking open the grid of time to liberate the proceedings. Dor Herskovits, the Israeli-born drummer whose deep feel and intelligent phrasing drive and shape the music, holds the key to its ebullience.
