On The Horizon: The Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet
This January, I had the privilege of joining Jason Marsalis in the studio, along with Austin Johnson on piano and Dave Potter on drums, to record our second album as Jason’s Vibes Quartet, which will be entitled “In a World of Mallets.” All tracking is complete, and the album is due out in fall of 2012.
A recent interview with Jason Marsalis includes some thoughts on the Vibes Quartet, the new record, and our group approach:
We’re looking forward to a pair of shows in the Northeast this March, in Schenectady and Philadelphia. Head to the calendar page for details. Here’s a brief video preview from our friend filmmaker Sascha Just and her upcoming documentary “The Beautiful City,” which features Jason and highlights New Orleans music, theater, food, and culture. The clips are taken from our recent performances at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, at Lincoln Center, New York City. For more on Sascha’s project, please visit: Frauleinfreytag.com
