Bernard Lyons’ Creative Differences series has pushed a style of music—call it free jazz, left-field jazz, not-at-all jazz, noise with horns, or whatever—that might otherwise skip these parts. And the talent that Lyons has brought to Baltimore—Henry Grimes, David Murray, Han Bennink, Evan Parker, and many more—is just plain unmatched. These are performers that, unlike in many genres, aren’t making gracious tour stops in a smaller market, but are actually coming to the Mid-Atlantic just to come to Baltimore for Creative Differences. Respect.
