AHa! Season kicks off with
Ernie Krivda's Jazz Quartet

Limited seating still available!
Friday, October 10
Set in a distinguished Shaker home

Now in his sixth decade as a jazz performer, Krivda is acknowledged by his peers and jazz critics as one of the world’s great tenor saxophone players. Writing in Jazz Times (April 2010), critic Mike Shanley called Krivda a unique artist who “possesses an endless flow of melodic ideas.”

Krivda’s distinctive improvisational style and unique compositions have been documented in more than 30 recordings under his name, including eleven releases since 2003. In 2009 he was honored with a lifetime achievement award from Cleveland Arts Prize and a Creative Workforce Fellowship from the Community Partnership of Arts and Culture.
