Hungarian-born drummer Ferenc Nemeth and Spanish-born saxophonist Javier Vercher will be celebrating the release of their new duo CD, Imaginary Realm (Dreamer’s Collective Records), this Saturday, October 26th, at The Jazz Gallery. The duo has collaborated previously, having released their first co-led record, Wheel of Time (Fresh Sound), in 2007, while also simultaneously pursuing various other projects.

Ferenc has released two albums as a leader for Dreamer’s Collective Records, Night Sounds in 2007 and Triumph in 2012, and he has worked as a sideman for artists as varied as Lionel Loueke, Omer Avital, and Hiromi. Javier, who originally studied classical clarinet in Valencia before exploring the world of jazz, has collaborated with musicians like Robert Glasper and Bob Moses, among others, and his latest record as a leader is Wish You Were Here (2011), which features Lionel Loueke, Sam Yahel, Larry Grenadier, and Francisco Mela. This Saturday, the duo will be joined by an as-yet-unannounced pianist and special guest Lionel Loueke on guitar. We hope that you’ll join us to celebrate the release of Ferenc and Javier’s latest collaboration.
