sneak peak – listen to new music for Outer Bridge Ensemble

Here is a link to Soundcloud where you can hear 3 tunes from a new album by the Outer Bridge Ensemble to be released in January 2013.  I am playing a hammond B3 for the first track, Determined.  Check it out!

The Outer Bridge Ensemble was started many moons ago by myself and drummer David Freeman when we started playing duo and experimented with musical styles, meters, forms, textures….I remember playing one tune at CBGB’s where the song was accompanied by a traffic report from AM radio.  Mark DeJong, Mike Noordzy, and Tom Buckelew joined the group and we approached the practice room like it was a laboratory without the smelly chemicals and bunsen burners.

Now it is a deep groovin’ septet with Mark DeJong-saxophones, yours truly on piano,organ,rhodes, David Freeman on percussion, Jerome Jennings on drums,

Soren Nissen on bass, James Zollar on trumpet, Carsten Rubeling on trombone, and guest artist Oren Neiman.  Stay tuned for shows in NYC, Toronto, and other cities around the US and Canada in early 2013.

Lemme know what you think.
