Concert - Ernive Krivda

Now in his fifth decade as a jazz performer, Ernie Krivda is acknowledged by both critics and peers as one of the world’s great tenor saxophone players. But as Harvey Pekar wryly pointed out, “No one may know this because he lives in Cleveland.” In demand all over the world, he can only say, “It might be better for my career to live somewhere else, but it’s better for my art to live in Cleveland.” An impressive body of recordings backs up that statement, but this concert is a chance for Library audiences to experience his performance in person in a cozy little auditorium with no clinking glass and no amplification—just the sound of the sax. Sit back and let him roar.
