A year ago, Alex LoRe released his debut album Dreamhouse (Inner-Circle Music), featuring the young saxophonist stepping out in the risky saxtrio format, as well as going toe-to-toe with master saxophonist George Garzone. The album received positive notice throughout New York’s jazz press, establishing LoRe as a musician to watch.
Recently, LoRe has been performing with a quartet, augmenting the rhythm team of bassist Desmond White and drummer Colin Stranahan with pianist Glenn Zaleski. The group has recently been showing up at the Cornelia Street Cafe, Shapeshifter Lab, and the Bar Next Door, so they will surely be in top form when they play The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, July 16th. Word has it that LoRe and company are working toward a new album. If LoRe’s strong debut is any indication, this preview show is not to be missed.
The Alex LoRe Quartet plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, July 16th, 2015. The group features Mr. LoRe on saxophone, Glenn Zaleski on piano, Desmond White on bass, and Colin Stranahan on drums. Sets are at 8 and 10 p.m. $15 general admission ($10 for members) for the first set, $10 general admission ($8 for members) for the second. Free with SummerPass. Purchase tickets here.
