In the new Philadelphia Weekly:

Daniel Peterson’s Truth & Consequence Octet
Thu., Jan. 27, 7pm. Free. Settlement Music School, 416 Queen St. 215.320.2600 www.smsmusic.org

Saxophonist/multireedist Daniel Peterson, a 2004 Temple graduate, co-curates the monthly Avant Ascension series at Tritone, and he’s honed his voice in a number of the city’s finer ensembles: Bobby Zankel’s Warriors, Odean Pope’s Saxophone Choir and more. His own recordings include the evocative suite Five Simple Worlds … And Ways of Getting There and now the audience-funded October, a live-in-studio document featuring his Truth & Consequence Octet. Heralding the new release this week, Peterson will summon a wealth of textural subtlety, rhythmic juice, bluesy bite and formal adventurism with vibraphonist Behn Gillece, violinist June Bender, trombonist Larry Toft, guitarist Mike Lorenz, bassist Matt Stein and drummer Wayne Smith. — David R.
