Ars Nova Workshop presents Chicago-based saxophonist Greg Ward and his heavyweight quintet Rogue’s Parade at Solar Myth on Wednesday, May 17.

Fresh off of his tenure with such notable artists as Prefuse 73, Tortoise and Lupe Fiasco, as well as ensembles led by Mike Reed and Nicole Mitchell, Ward introduced his dynamic outfit Rogue Parade with 2019’s critically acclaimed Stomping Off From Greenwood. The quintet – Ward alongside the stellar rhythm section of bassist Matt Ulery and drummer Quin Kirchner, further amplified by the incomparable sound of guitarists Matt Gold and Dave Miller – returned this year with the even more personal Dion’s Quest. This powerful document of Ward’s ongoing journey makes statements about the Covid-19 pandemic, the murder of George Floyd and the 2020 election cycle while showcasing the band’s collective sound – raw, eclectic and full of passion.
