The Yeager & Despommier Quintet Album Release Party feat. Aubrey Johnson

New York-based pianist/composer Jason Yeager returns to Twins Jazz Club, this time with New Orleans-bred saxophonist/composer Randal Despommier, celebrating the release of their album All At Onceness (Red Piano Records). The album is a soulful mix of improvisational arrangements of jazz, baroque, romantic, twentieth century classical pieces. With source material ranging from Stravinsky to Coltrane, Scriabin to Monk, these intrepid composer-improvisers stake out their own musical territory in a diverse program that combines folk melodies, evocative harmonies, and infectious rhythms. The program at Twins will also include inventive arrangements of jazz standards and new original compositions, as well as material from the album.

 

“...[Jason Yeager] always impressed me with his talent, his curiosity and his desire to create his own music while really investigating the jazz piano tradition.”

-Fred Hersch, Grammy-nominated pianist/composer and Doris Duke Fellow

 

“[Randal Despommier’s] Dance of Fury with Jason is multi-dimensional New Orleans hot….[Cherokee] is sensational, Randal’s masterpiece so far.”

-Ran Blake, pianist/composer and MacArthur Fellow 

 

“Modern and vintage classical sounds are delivered with a jazz sensibility on this intelligent album…”

-George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly
