Tomoko Omura + Glenn Zaleski Quartet from Alphabet City
Thursday, March 4
Recently, you may have seen Glenn Zaleski, James Johnson III, and Jeff Grubs perform on our stage (with Yoko Suzuki), tackling the complicated music of Geri Allen. They return, this time with Glenn’s wife, Tomoko Omuro, in a pre-recorded broadcast from Alphabet City. (Run time: 60 minutes)
The Tomoko Omura + Glenn Zaleski Quartet is an improvisational, modern jazz group, featuring two in-demand NYC musicians and two top-talent Pittsburghers. Listen as they play original compositions with touches of classical, folk, and traditional Japanese music. You won’t believe your ears as you hear genres mixing delightfully and effortlessly. You won’t hear anything like this anywhere else.
Broadcast from our stage are jazz favorites: Tomoko Omura (5-string violin); Glenn Zaleski (piano), James Johnson III (drums), and Jeff Grubbs(bass).
