Sublime saxwoman Melissa Aldana blows into the Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy on Saturday night, kicking off the center’s fall 2017 season of concerts.

Originally from Chile, Aldana broke into the New York jazz scene in 2009, quickly asserting herself as one of the most esteemed tenor saxophonists of her generation. In 2013, Aldana was recognized as the first female instrumentalist and the first South American ever to win the prestigious Thelonious Monk Competition. Since then, she has continued to raise the bar and innovate new sounds from traditional jazz forms.
