Tomeka Reid, Mary Halvorson, Jason Roebke, and Tomas Fujiwara 

When: Sat., Feb. 8, 9:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $10
For the past year or so cellist (and 2013 People Issue subject) Tomeka Reid has been leading a terrific quartet with shifting personnel but consistent instrumentation: cello, guitar, bass, and drums. Also consistent is the strength of the material—lean, elegantly melodic, and briskly propulsive. This weekend Reid will lead yet another version of the group, with bassist Jason Roebke and two New Yorkers, guitarist Mary Halvorson and drummer Tomas Fujiwara. Following the concert, that lineup will record Reid’s debut as a leader, which means her fans will finally be able to hear her sophisticated quartet writing on demand—so far the only way to enjoy it at home has been to rely on memories of a show dancing in your head. —Peter Margasak
