Anthony Cox, Dave King + Brandon Wozniak

Their "Acoustic Deathwish" is a Minnpost + City Pages Pick

“A new band of three bada**es…here’s the official thumbs-up preview. Anthony Cox (upright bass), Brandon Wozniak (tenor saxophone) and Dave King (drums) together? Power trio. King is best known internationally as a member of the Bad Plus; he’s also part of Happy Apple, Halloween Alaska and several more bands and projects. Wozniak has been literally blowing us away since he returned to the cities in 2006 after six years in New York and six months in Shanghai. Anthony Cox is a legend. 9 p.m. both nights.” FMI and tickets ($15/$20). —Pamela Espeland, Minnpost’s Artscape

Acoustic Deathwish is Vector Families without guitarist Dean Granros, whose frantic sunbursts occasionally become beautiful detours. His absence allows saxophonist Brandon Wozniak the chance to stretch, a la Sonny Rollins or Joe Henderson, with a dream rhythm section itself consumed with protean interplay and improvisation—Dave King on drums, and Anthony Cox on bass and cello. 9 p.m. $15. 408 St. Peter St., St. Paul.
