New York composer-bassist Adam Hopkins and his sextet celebrate the release of their new album, Crickets! This is a special treat for us–how often do we get to hear a sextet on tour?!
“…compelling and unconventional jazz compositions juxtaposed with blowouts. This is a singular release and hopefully the first of many from Hopkins.” – Avant Music News
Crickets is a head-on collision of the various musical worlds influenced by Tim Berne, Henry Threadgill, Michael Formanek, and Igor Stravinsky. Crickets takes classic and jazz traditions with the bands of Adam’s youth like Nirvana, Pavement, and Fugazi.
Adam will be joined by Anna Webber (tenor saxophone), Ed Rosenberg (tenor saxophone), Josh Sinton (baritone saxophone/bass clarinet), Jonathan Goldberger (guitar), Devin Gray (drums) for this album release event.alphabet city, city of asylum, jazz
