This Friday, July 28th, The Jazz Gallery is pleased to welcome bassist Chris Morrissey back to our stage. In 2015, Morrissey received a Jazz Gallery commission and composed a series of songs for a new band of singer-instrumentalists called Standard Candle. A fixture in the pop world as well as the jazz/improv world (Morrissey has worked closely with the likes of Sara Bareilles and Andrew Bird), Standard Candle has proven an ideal outlet for Morrissey’s multifaceted aesthetic.
For the Gallery performance this weekend, Morrissey will reconvene Standard Candle with a slightly altered lineup—Grey McMurray on guitar & voice, Nick Videen on alto saxophone & voice, Sarah Pedinotti on synth & voice, and Dan Weiss on drums. Before coming to the Gallery to hear Morrissey’s songs take on new life, check out this live performance of the gut-busting “I Knew You” from Rockwood Musical Hall, and read about Morrissey’s original concept for the project.
Chris Morrissey and Standard Candle play The Jazz Gallery on Friday, July 28th, 2017. The group features Mr. Morrissey on bass & voice, Grey McMurray on guitar & voice, Nick Videen on alto saxophone & voice, Sarah Pedinotti on synth & voice, and Dan Weiss on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $22 general admission ($12 for members) for each set. FREE for SummerPass holders. Purchase tickets here.
