November 9 | The Buffalo Improv Collective brings an entirely new program that melds jazz and classical music.

The Buffalo Improv Collective brings an entirely new program that melds jazz and classical music on November 9, 2019. “Inflections & Innuendoes” brings together celebrated musicians and composers Jonathan Golove on cello, Leanne Darling on viola, Alec Dube on vibraphone and Kelly Bucheger on saxophones. Both Dube and Bucheger have led groups at the Taylor in the past, and this new collaboration with Golove and Darling takes improvisation to a new level. Cellist/composer Golove is a member of the critically acclaimed Baird Trio and serves as Associate Professor in the University at Buffalo’s Department of Music. He has been a featured soloist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra, Slee Sinfonietta, and as a guest artist with the Cassatt Quartet and the Cleveland Octet. Leanne Darling holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music. She draws from her classical technique, her skills in many musical genres and her passion for improvisation to break the boundaries for an often-underused instrument. Her unique solo viola compositions use the entire scope of her instrument, mixing more traditional sounds with electric sound effects. This group promises an evening of chamber jazz, beauty and surprises.
