“Freebird” featuring Jason Moran (Sunnyside Records), is the latest record from the group” Walking Distance” and mutates the music of Charlie Parker by smashing, stretching, and deconstructing his virtuosic melodies - creating new modern, contemporary, humorous and vital music, powered by acclaimed pianist Jason Moran. By enlisting Grammy-nominated producer/mixer Ben Rubin to construct a unique sound palate for each song, Freebird transformed into an epic journey of a record, each song its own world. The combination of virtuoso performances with sonic storytelling has resulted in an album that retains the sound and feel of acoustic jazz while setting a new standard for the way jazz records can sound. Tonight’s New York based group will perform a selection from their new album and revisit some old classics joined by UK pianist Andrew McCormack
