Anick describes their musical style as “jazz without borders”:
What the axiom means to Anick is a contemporary jazz that is stylistically inclusive in nature, a jazz that brings whatever it can to the party, unwilling to cut something out of the mix for fear of it not fitting prescribed boundaries. . .
Blending Anick originals that openly incorporate the influences of mainstream jazz, classical, new acoustic music, Gypsy jazz, swing, and hard bop with a wide-ranging swath of jazz classics, Tipping Point declares that for open-eared members of the 28-year-old string master’s generation, musical exclusion is a dead end. What tie together the various strains of Anick’s vision are his extraordinary command of his chosen instruments and the spirited contributions of the like-minded players that accompany him on this musical journey.
The performance in Pilgrim Church’s Fellowship Hall is at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $15 in advance ($12 for students/seniors through Brown Paper Tickets) or $18 at the door ($15 for students/seniors).
Proceeds from the refreshment sales are donated to local and regional charity. As is their tradition, organizers are also requesting people to bring donations for the Southborough Food Pantry.
