This is from Jessica's email list. I really like this ensemble and recommend this show:
Hello All and Happy February!
It's coming! It is just around the corner - next week!
I am having a NYC Pre-Release Celebration for my next CD release, MEGAPHONE HEART on Saturday February 18 at 9 pm at 92Y TRIBECA!
This is a fabulous and beautiful sounding space and I hope you can join us!
The album is "officially" slated for release to the wide world on April 24th, but what better way to bring in Spring with flurries of snow and warm music and a fantastic band all in one place? The CD will be there in physical copy as well as other sweet deals for bonus tracks, bundles, t-shirts and stickers and more.
This will be an amazing show - the band will all be here - co-producer Todd Sickafoose on bass coming from the west coast (Ani Di Franco's band), Erik Deutsch on piano (soon off to tour with Shooter Jennings), Brandon Seabrook on banjo and guitar (the unstoppable shred-banjo of Seabrook power plant), and Allison Miller on drums (Brandi Carlyle's band, Boom Tic Boom), with the lovely Marika Hughes on cello and Tina Richerson on baritone sax and a few other secret special guests TBA!
The night is going to be shared by the Dan Tepfer Trio ( www.dantepfer.com) with Dan on piano, Allison Miller on drums and Ohad Talmor on saxophone.
Please buy tickets in advance! We are hoping it will be packed and it also makes us look very cool - and you get a great seat for the show!
“Jessica Lurie is considered one of the most exciting interpreters of music today, pushing stylistic barriers ... to construct new musical landscapes, to musically daydream with an extreme sense of purpose.” (Giuseppe Segala, All About Jazz Italy)
