“A hard bop foray for the quartet, , full of intriguing detail, pulsing with life.” -Howard Mandel
At a time of great political and social uncertainty between “us” and “them”, the dynamic post-cold war partnership of the Russian Federation’s Oleg Kireyev (saxophone) and America’s Keith Javors (piano) continues to flourish. Following up on their critically-acclaimed debut record Rhyme and Reason, the tandem will unveil a new album featuring jazz trumpet luminary Tom Harrell alongside first-call NYC musicians Ben Williams and E.J. Strickland on May 31, 2016 (iTunes and Google Play pre orders begin May 3). The new outing, appropriately entitled The Meeting, bridges the cultural influences of two continents and offers fresh new compositions by the co-leaders. Don’t miss this important meeting!
