Melissa Aldana & the Crash Trio LIVE at Jazz Gallery!

Jazz&Pop's Blog

melissaaldana_920x613A couple of weeks ago Melissa Aldana, a 24-year-old tenor saxophonist originally from Santiago, Chile, and now living in New York, won the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Competition, becoming the first female musician to do so. So this one-nighter will probably have the air of a victory lap — or at least a triumphant homecoming, given that the Jazz Gallery has been a kind of second home for her. She leads her Crash Trio, with Pablo Menares on bass and Francisco Mela on drums. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Jazz Gallery at Salt Space, 1160 Broadway, fifth floor, at West 27th Street, (212) 242-1063, jazzgallery.org; $20, $10 for members. (Nate Chinen)
