This Thursday, November 1, The Jazz Gallery welcomes bassist Jeong Lim Yang and her quintet to our stage for two sets. A native of South Korea, Yang studied at the Berklee College of Music, then moved to New York in 2011. In 2017, Yang released her debut album, Déjà Vu (Fresh Sound New Talent) with a quintet featuring veteran saxophonists Adam Kolker and Michael Attias, as well as rhythm section peers Nick Sanders on piano and Jesse Simpson on drums. Yang’s original compositions on the album follow the lineage of bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Paul Motian, courting abstraction and lyricism in equal measure.
Yang will reconvene this quintet at the Gallery to play material from Déjà Vu. Before seeing the band live, check out their performance of “Moon Tethered,” an homage to trio of Masabumi Kikuchi, Gary Peacock, and Paul Motian.
The Lim Yang Quintet plays The Jazz Gallery on Thursday, November 1, 2018. The group features Ms. Yang on bass, Adam Kolker and Michael Attias on saxophones, Nick Sanders on piano, and Jesse Simpson on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $15 general admission (FREE for members), $20 reserved cabaret seating ($10 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
