It was a stellar amazing set of music. I got there a little late, at about 7:45. They played til around 8:50. It was phenomenal. Ravi and Dave together are brilliantly amazing. The rhythm section with Vijay, Linda, and EJ was off the hook. I'm very glad I made it a priority.
ORANGE AFTERNOONS QUINTET
Dave Douglas – trumpet
Ravi Coltrane – tenor saxophone
Vijay Iyer – piano
Linda Oh – bass
E.J. Strickland – drums
This modern–day jazz “super–group” is certain to draw crowds for tonight’s very special digital release engagement for Orange Afternoons. Ravi Coltrane and Vijay Iyer likely need no introduction. Both these celebrated instrumentalists have appeared on our stage with their own bands on multiple occasions. Bassist Linda Oh is a relative newcomer to the New York scene. The acclaimed pianist of the group Vijay Iyer says of Oh “a young bass powerhouse from down-under...I love how she just blew into town and took over.”
