We’re pleased to welcome back to our stage Slovenian saxophonist Jure Pukl this Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014. Jure returns with his “Sound Pictures” quintet, which features a couple names you’ll probably recognize: Adam Rogers on guitar, Sam Harris on piano, Joe Sanders on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums. The all-star configuration, which last convened at the Gallery in January, goes into the studio on the 26th to record Jure’s new album for Fresh Sound New Talent. For this latest release, the quintet will be augmented by two special guests: saxophonist Melissa Aldana and vocalist Sachal Vasandani.

Jure’s last record, Abstract Society (Storyville), which featured the likes of pianist Vijay Iyer, drummer Damion Reid, and Sanders on bass, was released in 2012, and it’s well-worth checking out for the global sensibility that Jure brings to his collaborative music-making. Considering the amount of time he spends across Europe and other distant reaches of the globe, we’re lucky to have Jure share his music on our stage, and we hope that you’ll join us in welcoming him back.

Jure Pukl performs with the “Sound Pictures” Quintet this Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014, at The Jazz Gallery. The performance will feature Pukl on saxophone, Adam Rogers on guitar, Sam Harris on piano, Joe Sanders on bass, and Rudy Royston on drums. The first set is $15.00 ($10.00 for Members); the second set is $10.00 for everyone. Purchase tickets here.

Please note that sets are at 8 and 10 pm., our new set times starting in September.
