Drummer/composer Harris Eisenstadt is still basking in the glow of his new role as father to young Owen Eric, born a few weeks ago, but he’s not off the musical market completely.

He has three gigs in New York this month, including the patriotic debut of his new trio with saxophonist Ellery Eskelin and cellist Chris Hoffman, a sideman date with guitarist Sean Moran‘s Small Elephant and the return of his own nonet, Woodblock Prints.
