This Friday, February 1, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome bassist Fima Ephron to our stage to celebrate the release of his new album, Songs From The Tree (Modern Icon). Effortlessly sliding between styles, Ephron has made his name playing with the likes of saxophonist Chris Potter and guitarist Adam Rogers and the notable downtown groups Lost Tribe and Screaming Headless Torsos. Songs From The Tree is Ephron’s third album as a leader and showcases his trademark eclecticism—from the gorgeous ambience of “Bamboo,” to the deep-pocket funk of “Ground of Being,” to the plainspoken lyricism of “Know Self.” Featuring Potter on saxophones, Rogers on guitar, Kevin Hays on keyboards, and Nate Smith on drums, the album is richly layered, belying the fact that it was recorded in a single 10-hour session.
For the release show at the Gallery, Ephron will be joined by Rogers and Potter, as well as Jon Cowherd on keyboards and Gene Lake on drums. Don’t miss these top musicians take flight on Ephron’s wide-ranging compositions.
The Fima Ephron Group plays The Jazz Gallery on Friday, February 1, 2019. The group features Mr. Ephron on bass, Chris Potter on saxophones, Adam Rogers on guitar, Jon Cowherd on keyboards, and Gene Lake on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
