Incredibly excited to announce the first release of 2019 from BLOOR and their debut album "Drolleries"! Bloor is the trio of Sam Weinberg on saxophones, Andrew Smiley on guitar & Jason Nazary on drums. Bloor is making some of the most exciting free jazz/no wave/out sounds around NY right now! Drolleries is out on CD & Cassette & Digital on January 25th! Pre-order now at Bandcamp!
Quin Kirchner's "The Other Side of Time" lands on Bandcamp's Best Jazz of 2018!! "When I recommended Quin Kirchner’s new album back in January, I said, “It’s way too early to be saying things like ‘This is the best thing I’ve heard all year…’” As it turned out, this is pretty much the best thing I’ve heard all year."
Tomorrow night in ATX at The Volstead! Starts at 7pm sharp and absolutely free as always!! Lisa Cameron & Sandy Ewen (NY) celebrate their new AS tape release alongside Dane Rousay, Jester N (Norway) and more!!! I’ll be DJing as well. Come hang!
