Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band
Monday, June 11 @ 7:00 PM
Brian Blade & The Fellowship Band marked their 20th anniversary in 2017 with the release of their sublime fifth album, Body and Shadow, a succinct nine-track mediation on lightness/darkness that arrives like a balm for the soul, ebbing and flowing with grace, subtlety and no shortness of beauty. Formed in 1997, the band released their eponymous debut in 1998, but the bond among the musicians goes back even further. Blade, the band’s namesake and drummer, first met pianist Jon Cowherd in 1988 while attending Loyola University in New Orleans and they met bassist Chris Thomas in the Crescent City a year later. With Myron Walson (alto sax and clarinet) and Melvin Butler (tenor sax), the Fellowship Band’s sturdy bond has evolved with every album. Body and Shadow, which also features Denver-based guitarist Dave Devine, is an extension of that evolution.
