CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: This mid-May installment of the Cabbagetown Concert Series features saxophonist-composer Jeff Crompton’s latest project, Standard Practice, in performance at the coolest little amphitheater ITP. As a trio, bassist Chris Riggenbach and drummer/percussionist Kenito Murray accompany Crompton on an edgy and adventurous journey through the jazz standards catalog. — DD
From the venue:Joyce Bank Amphitheatre. After years of concentrating on original music, Jeff brought together Standard Practice to explore the standard jazz repertoire in interesting and creative ways. Jeff, Chris, and Kenito all have played in both straight-ahead and more experimental contexts, so they are well-equipped to pay respect to some familiar tunes while stretching them into unfamiliar territory.
