Bassist and turntablist Zack Lober keeps a busy schedule in New York, backing up top jazz musicians like David Binney and Jamie Baum, playing with rockers like Adam Sullivan, or performing expert DJ sets (like at Governor’s Ball this Friday). But in between all these gigs, Zack has developed and honed an evening-length show that combines all his musical interests: The Ancestry Project.
The Ancestry Project tells the story of Lober’s grandfather, Hyman Herman, a longtime musician and bandleader in Montreal. Zack presented The Ancestry Project last May at The Jazz Gallery; definitely check out the Jazz Speaks interview with him here. We are proud to have Lober back again to perform this adventurous and moving work before he takes it on a tour of Canada this fall.
Zack Lober’s Ancestry Project performs at The Jazz Gallery on Saturday, June 6th, 2015. The group features Mr. Lober on bass and turntables, David Binney on alto saxophone, Chet Doxas on tenor saxoohone, John Escreet on piano, and Dan Weiss on drums. Sets are at 8 and 10 p.m. $22 general admission ($12 for members). Purchase tickets here.
