The official street date for Harris Eisenstadt‘s latest release, Canada Day (Clean Feed), is still a few weeks away, but listeners can get a live preview tonight at Clean Feed Fest IV at New York’s Cornelia Connelly Center.
Eisenstadt will be performing with his primary working group, also called Canada Day, featuring Nate Wooley (trumpet), Ellery Eskelin (sitting in for Matt Bauder on tenor saxophone), Chris Dingman (vibraphone) and Eivind Opsvik (bass).
“The cohesion of the ensemble, glued by the steady, steaming, streaming rhythms of Eisenstadt, keeps the listener focused and compelled to hear more,” writes AllMusic.com’s Michael G. Nastos. “This is a strong candidate for Top Ten status in the category of best jazz CDs of 2009.”
The group will hit the road in support of their new record, which comes out October 6th, in late October, stopping in Buffalo, NYC, Rochester and Toronto.
