Russ Gershon - the bandleader and arranger behind the long running and critically acclaimed "little big band" Either/Orchestra and, more recently, the Afro-Cuban and Bugalu revival band Lookie Lookie, and founder of influential local jazz label Accurate Records - returns to Mandorla Music for a rare trio appearance. Joining Russ (saxes and flute) will be Blake Newman (Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Jeff Robinson Trio, Musaner) on bass, and Phil Neighbors (RSE, Funky White Honkies) on drums. Expect to hear originals and music by Russ's faves Rahsaan, Mingus and Sonny among others.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
