Add to Calendar 2014-08-28 8:30 pm 2014-08-28 Travis Sullivan Trio Farewell Party at Tagine Fine Moroccan Cuisine Posi-Tone Records recording artist Travis Sullivan has earned a worldwide reputation as an alto saxophonist, pianist, composer, and arranger. Embedded in the New York music scene for the past 15 years, he has been hailed by Jazz Times as being “…a gifted alto saxophonist and improviser who has also developed a strong and commanding voice as a composer.”

In May 2011, Sullivan is releasing his CD “New Directions,” his third album as a leader and his debut on Posi-Tone Records. “New Directions” presents eight of his original modern jazz compositions, as well as Rodgers & Hart’s “Spring is Here,” and his arrangement of the Tears for Fears classic “Everybody Wants to Rule the World.” The new album also features his newly formed group The Travis Sullivan Quartet, which will be performing nationally and throughout Europe later this year.

New Directions is his first small ensemble release in over a decade. In 1999 Sullivan’s self-release Travis Sullivan’s Project One: As We Speak featured a quartet that included guitarist Rez Abbasi and drummer Ari Honig. In 2002, his breakthrough came in the form of Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra, an 18-piece big band performing his arrangements of the renowned music of Icelandic pop goddess Bjork, and in 2008 he released Travis Sullivan’s Bjorkestra: Enjoy! on Koch Records. Sullivan formed his new quartet in early 2010, with himself on alto saxophone, Mike Eckroth on piano, Marco Panascia on bass, and Brian Fishler on drums. “It’s exciting to be returning to a quartet setting,” says Sullivan, “and I’m looking forward to further developing my creative voice as both a composer and improviser in this context.”

Sullivan has performed in the U.S. at venues such as The Blue Note, Iridium, The Jazz Standard, Joe’s Pub, and the SF Jazz Festival. He has also appeared internationally at The Montreal Jazz Festival, The Jarasum Jazz Festival (South Korea), and as a conductor for the Cologne Contemporary Jazz Orchestra (Germany), the Sicilian Jazz Orchestra (Italy), and the Reykjavik Big Band (Iceland).
