NYC trumpeter John Raymond's "Real Feels" & Johannes Wallmann Quartet

8:30pm: Johannes Wallmann Quartet  with Tony Barba, tenor sax; John Christensen, bass; Keith Lienert, drums

10:00pm: John Raymond & Real Feels (Gilad Hekselman, guitar, and Colin Stranahan, drums)

JOHANNES WALLMANN QUARTET:
“The Town Musicians affirms Johannes Wallmann’s reputation as a remarkable pianist and composer.” – John Murph, Downbeat
 “A well educated, truly international kind of cat […] making music that meets on the corner of complex and accessible” – Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“Performed with light hands, the pianist’s work – especially on “Water Music (for people without Aquariums)” and “November Song” has an easy charm that serves to accentuate the otherwise dominant key of fierce tension.” – Jazz Da Gamba

JOHN RAYMOND's "REAL FEELS":
Labeled "a prepossessing young trumpet player…" (New York Times), New York-based trumpeter John Raymond's new album "Real Feels" brings together a unique band that includes guitarist Gilad Hekselman and drummer Colin Stranahan. With Raymond at the helm solely on flugelhorn, this bass-less group puts a fresh spin on familiar songs, many of them stemming from Raymond's roots as a Midwesterner. From American folk songs like Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," to classic hymns such as "Amazing Grace," to Lennon & McCartney's "Blackbird," to Thom Yorke's indie-rocker "Atoms for Peace," the music undoubtedly evokes a nostalgia for the past. However, "Real Feels" is far from being antiquated; the band's improvisational, free-wheeling, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of approach to the music makes the songs feel entirely relevant. Combine that with the deep camaraderie the trio shares and "Real Feels" radiates a kind of fun and authenticity that distinguishes it from anything else.

"Electrifyingly new and strangely familiar at the same time...with his mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned feeling, Raymond is steering jazz in the right direction." (Downbeat Magazine)

This performance is part of the Real Feel's 22-city CD release tour across the country. Tickets are $10, and CDs will be for sale as well as premium quality "Real Feels" tees, zip up hoodies, tote bags, stickers and "Real Feels" temporary tattoos. Don't miss it!
