On Friday, January 30th, Boston-based guitarist/composer Garrison Fewell and his newest working ensemble, the Variable Density Sound Orchestra, will celebrate their forthcoming self-titled debut on Creative Nation Music with a two-set performance at the Cambridge Family YMCA Theater in Cambridge, MA.
The group, which features Roy Campbell (trumpet and flute), Achille Succi (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), Eric Hofbauer (guitar), John Voigt (bass) and Miki Matsuki (drums), will be joined by special guests, Steve Swell (trombone) and Dmitry Ishenko (bass).
Variable Density Sound Orchestra (CNM 014) officially hits the streets February 17th.
“Guitarist Garrison Fewell has never stopped moving forward on his musical journey from accomplished post-bop guitarist to free-jazz explorer,” writes music journalist Ed Hazell in the liner notes. “Here, on his most fully realized and personal recording in the free jazz idiom to date, you can still hear the thoughtfulness, tenderness, and intimacy; careful listening; and the rigorous construction of line and feel for melody that have marked all his albums. The Variable Density Sound Orchestra is a group well suited to realizing Garrison’s concepts and compositions.”
