The 5-piece Ken Field Nonstandards is an ensemble comprised of Boston-based all-star musicians, who are bringing to light lesser-known and rarely performed compositions and arrangements, created by the ensemble’s leader, saxophonist/flautist Ken Field.
Field will be joined by keyboardist Amy Bellamy, drummer Yoron Israel, bassist/sintirist Mike Rivard, and violinist Helen Sherrah-Davies, as they collaborate in realizing new and exciting interpretations of pieces pulled from Field’s catalog of work.
This is a rare opportunity to hear the Nonstandards ensemble. The group was formed this past June, to participate in a one-time only engagement at Somerville's annual Joe’s Jazz and Blues Festival. However, the response was so positive that Field decided to regroup for this special second appearance at the Regattabar.
"Something quite original in the world of jazz and beyond." (Kory Cook, KUT Radio, Austin, TX)
