News and September and October shows

Hi everyone! As we move on into the fall, I wanted to send an update as to the new happenings in my musical world. There’s plenty of new music coming your way, both in person and digitally!!

I kick off September playing at the Chicago Jazz Festival for the first time since I was 19! I’m playing with Barry Altschul’s 3Dom Factor at 330 PM on Sunday, September 4 at the Von Freeman Stage. Shortly after that, I’m taking the Behind the Sky quartet (with Rudy Royston, Luis Perdomo and Yasushi Nakamura) to Buenos Aires, Argentina, for the first time to play several concerts, give masterclasses and lessons and to record our next record, which will be out in the middle of 2017 on Irabbagast Records. More as that develops.

Later in September and October, I’m doing a short Northeast tour with Barry Altschul’s 3Dom Factor as well as local NYC shows, including my first solo sopranino solo in town in several months and the CD release show for the Mary Halvorson Octet, as well as playing in the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra for two nights as a guest for a new piece my former teacher Victor Goines has written!

Finally, Irabbagast Records is expanding its output and releasing two records from great musicians and dear friends of mine. First, Madison, Winsconsin, resident Anders Svanoe is releasing a baritone saxophone record with bass and drums entitled State of the Baritone. It’s a great representation of his fiery, expansive playing and features one of my favorite baritone saxophone sounds ever. Also coming out in a few months is the first record by the Uptown Jazz Tentet, a group led by Brandon Lee, Willie Applewhite and James Burton III, three of my good friends from back in the Juilliard days. More info on both of these projects soon.

As always, thanks for your support!
Best,
Jon
