Film: LEGACY: Jon Irabagon A Solo Tenor Odyssey

First-generation Filipino-American saxophonist Jon Irabagon is showcased as never before in the innovative performance film Legacy Jon IrabagonA Solo Tenor Odyssey, directed by Julian Melanson and produced by A Tribe for Jazz Executive Director Stephanie Matthews. 

The film features Irabagon completely solo, in a beautifully lit, artistically shot black-box theater environment, playing original compositions drawn from just about every stage in his career, including two previously unreleased songs, “Greebles” and “Alliance.” Throughout he reveals a formidable, deeply felt mastery of the tenor saxophone — arguably jazz’s most iconic instrument. Legacy Jon Irabagon, A Solo Tenor Odyssey is both an extended reflection on the lineage of the horn itself, and a statement on Irabagon’s own considerable artistic legacy.

Free admission.
