This Thursday, December 14th, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome Adam O’Farrill’s Stranger Days back to our stage for two sets. Their self-titled debut from 2016 garnered significant acclaim; in The New York Times, Nate Chinen called it “a potent declaration of independence, as much as it is a glowing indication of promise.”
At the Gallery this week, the group will be playing a varied program, including a new suite of music called “Hungry at the Slaughterhouse,” inspired by O’Farrill’s experience working on a farm in Maine last summer. They will also be performing music from their next album, set to release in 2018, as well as some traditional Mexican tunes. Before coming out to the show, check out O’Farrill’s stark and evocative composition “Henry Ford Hospital”—inspired by the Frida Kahlo painting—below.
Adam O’Farrill Stranger Days plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, December 14th, 2017. The group features Mr. O’Farrill on trumpet, Chad Lefkowitz-Brown on tenor saxophone, Walter Stinson on bass, and Zack O’Farrill on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission ($10 for members), $25 reserved cabaret seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
