This Tuesday, June 5, The Jazz Gallery is proud to present a special melding of two like-minded groups—Real Feels and Endless Field. Led by trumpeter John Raymond, the trio Real Feels has a fluid stylistic sensibility, drawing ambience and lyricism from contemporary indie rock into their chamber jazz interplay. In addition to performing Raymond’s original works, the trio has delved into the modern rock songbook with covers of tunes like Bon Iver’s “Minnesota, WI,” below.
The duo Endless Field features long-time friends/collaborators Jesse Lewis on guitar and Ike Sturm on bass. The duo’s gently fingerpicked lines and lush textures can call to mind the work of the band Oregon, or Pat Metheny, yet they’ve forged a unique path by drawing on their love of the natural world, like in the tune “Infinite Cascade.”
For this special night at the Gallery, these two groups will come together, alongside pianist Fabian Almazan, and vibraphonist Chris Dingman, two players whose soundscaping ability will add yet more depth to the ensembles’ contemplative sound worlds. Don’t miss this night of exquisitely serene yet rigorously improvised music.
