Anthony Nelson is a multi-talented reeds player, though he typically sticks to the tenor saxophone. He has a burnished, stout sound and a lightning-quick improvisational attack. He sometimes performs with a trio (only bass and drums), and his brawny tenor tone is remarkably proficient at filling in the extra space; he won’t need to here. Two separate sets at 9 and 11 p.m.
