1 I might go! Add to calendar 2014-07-21 2014-07-21 35 Nate Birkey Quartet at 55 Bar CD Release Concert celebrating the release of Nate Birkey's Jazz/Gospel album, "Just A Closer Walk"

NYC-based jazz trumpeter, vocalist and bandleader Nate Birkey has built a solid reputation for creating a modernizing “mainstream” musical voice, steeped in subtle swing and expressive lyricism which has earned comparisons to Chet Baker, while making careful, tasteful detours into other rhythms and genres. He steps into some terrain both new and old by offering fresh yet traditional approaches to the realm of gospel music and spirituals on the album Just a Closer Walk, his latest and seventh album on the Household Ink label. Recorded in Santa Barbara, where Birkey lived for several years before heading east, the inspiring all-instrumental song set features the ripe and empathetic work of his “west coast” quintet, with pianist Jamieson Trotter, tenor saxist Tom Buckner, bassist Jim Connolly and drummer Peter Buck. It’s another strong addition to a fascinating discography and musical adventure in progress for Birkey.
