As previously reported, Colin Stetson, AKA The Only Bass Saxophone Player You Know, will hit the road this spring, showcasing gems off the 12th best album of 2011, New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges, and the subsequent Those Who Didnt Run EP. What starts in the East coast later this month carries over to the West coast in late April/early May for what’s being billed as The Alone Together Tour.
A press release indicates that the West coast jaunt will spotlight “three instrumentalists from different but related musical communities,” the likes of which include Stetson, violinist Sarah Neufeld (of Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre), and pianist Gregory Rogove (of Devendra Banhart, Megapuss, and Priestbird).
Consult the full itinerary below, and check out the video for “Those Who Didn’t Run” shortly after.
