Kicking off the Blue Note’s Emerging Artist Series, presented by Brother Thelonious of North Coast Brewing Co., is young tenor saxophonist Adam Larson. Orignally from Norman, IL, Larson was recently described by Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune as “a player for whom the word ‘prodigious’ was coined.” Larson is currently in his sophomore year of college on full scholarship at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City, where he studies privately with teachers George Garzone and John Riley. Focusing on original composition, Larson’s quintet and collective “Beyond the Boundaries”, strive to find a unique sound in hopes of finding its niche in today’s ever-changing music scene.
