A look inside The Jazz Gallery

This weekend, the Steve Lehman Trio (Matt Brewer: bass; Damion Reid: drums; SL: saxophone) will celebrate the release of their new album, Dialect Fluorescent (Pi) at The Jazz Gallery. They will be joined by a special guest pianist each night: David Virelles on Thursday, Vijay Iyer on Friday, and James Hurt on Saturday.

We’ll be posting more on this tomorrow, including an interview with Steve, but in the meantime, check out the EPK for the release above and stream a track via NPR.

We also highly recommend this guest post that Steve wrote for The International Contemporary Ensemble, in which he discusses influences ranging from Autechre to Allen Iverson.
