The PRISM Quartet presents Heritage/Evolution, a three-concert series at World Café Live featuring world premieres of new works composed and performed by jazz saxophonists Steve Lehman, Dave Liebman, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Greg Osby, Tim Ries, and Miguel Zenón.

Heritage/Evolution charts fresh musical territory, drawing on the saxophone's cross-cultural heritage to blend jazz with everything from Western and South Indian classical music to Romani and Latin American folkloric music.

This event is the last of three concerts in the Heritage/Evolution series and features the work of Dave Liebman and Greg Osby. Osby is a saxophonist, composer, producer, educator, and 2012 Pew Fellow. Liebman is an NEA Master of Jazz whose discography spans nearly 350 records.
