The five-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 is 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.
