The Jazz Gallery has a very special weekend ahead, celebrating not one, but two exciting album releases. This Thursday, the Gallery is proud to present the young collective Great On Paper as they celebrate the release of their debut album, eponymously titled and to be released on Endectomorph Music.
Great On Paper is made up of Kevin Sun on saxophones, Isaac Wilson on piano, Simon Willson on bass, and Robin Baytas on drums. The group first convened while the members were studying at New England Conservatory and completed their first tour this past summer, featuring a stop at The Jazz Gallery. Their music is quite varied, moving from knotty originals to a stately and colorful chorale by the classical composer Olivier Messiaen. Pianist Ethan Iverson of The Bad Plus has written incisive liner notes, putting this music in its contemporary context. Before coming to the Gallery to check out this exciting young band in person, you should stream their debut record below—a Jazz Speaks exclusive!
Great On Paper performs at The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, February 11th, 2016. The group features Kevin Sun on saxophones, Isaac Wilson on piano, Simon Willson on bass, and Robin Baytas on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
