Hello, I hope the spring is treating you well! There’s a lot happening on the homefront these next couple of months!
My record label, Irabbagast Records, has released a CD by Madison, Wisconsin native Anders Svanoe, who has performed with Roscoe Mitchell, Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and others. His new release is entitled State of the Baritone and features 15 originals by Anders and his mighty baritone.
We have also released the Uptown Jazz Tentet’s debut recording, There It Is, featuring many of the great musicians I went to Juilliard with so many years ago.
In the works, Irabbagast has Svanoe’s State of the Baritone Volume 2 coming up, as well as a solo recording by contrabass clarinetist Josh Sinton, a straight ahead jazz outing from trumpet great Brandon Lee, and the Jon Irabagon Quartet’s new record, which will feature the great Tim Hagans on trumpet. Keep coming back here or to facebook.com/jonirabagonmusic for information as it comes along!
My new organ trio that debuted during my week-long residency at the Stone back in March was asked to headline a night a New York City’s Jazz Standard, one of my favorite places to play. We’ll be playing two sets on Wednesday, July 26th and features Gary Versace on organ and Nasheet Waits on drums. Mark your calendars!
Thanks for reading! Here is a list of my May and June performances; hope to see you out and about!
