About

“Our artists endeavor towards producing works which will reveal the best that fearless and idealistic thinkers can achieve in art music.”
-Greg Osby

On September 28th through the 30th Greg Osby’s independent and forward-thinking record label, Inner Circle Music (INCM), will present six of its compelling composer-bandleaders at some of New York’s most vibrant and intimate listening rooms for creative music.

On September 28th at Matt Garrison’s Shapeshifter Lab, three intrepid bandleaders will present their unique boundary-eschewing brands of improvised music.

Omura’s band features Glenn Zaleski on piano, Jeff Miles on guitar, Noah Garabedian on bass, and Jay Sawyer on drums (7pm). Virtuoso guitarist Kenji Herbert will then present his own compositions with a unique lineup, including Maeve Gilchrist on harp, the aforementioned Omura on violin, and fellow INCM artist Yuhan Su on vibraphone and malletkat (8:15pm).

A $15 cover charge will entitle attendees access to the three sets....

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
