    Eliel Sherman Storey: The Renegade Collaboration

    Eliel Sherman Storey sees himself more as a cultural warrior who happens to study the saxophone, and as the result has developed a very personal approach to the saxophone, and his compositions speak to the disenfranchisement of the African diaspora. His vocabulary often punctuated by long deliberate lines that resolves unexpectedly. This version of his band, “THE RENEGADE COLLABORATION” consists of Chicago’s iconic saxophone player, Ari Brown who will also display profound piano skills along with Harrison Bankhead on acoustic bass, hard driving Vincent Davis on drums and the artistic approach to percussion and miscellaneous instruments of Tony Carpenter. They will perform one set only on Saturday, November 24 at 9pm.
