Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm:
When Noah Preminger celebrates his 30th birthday this year, he can look back on a prodigious record of creative achievement even as he relentlessly plows new musical ground. His first album Dry Bridge Road, issued shortly after the saxophonist had turned 21, was named Debut of the Year in the Village Voice Critics Poll. He recorded two further well–received albums for Palmetto Records (Before The Rain and Haymaker) and has gigged and/or recorded with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano, and Roscoe Mitchell, just to name a few. Two new Noah Preminger recordings are expected in 2016, including an all–ballads date on Newvelle Records, a French vinyl label; and a Mississippi Delta blues–inspired set that takes its title from the Blind Willie Johnson classic Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground. “Mr. Preminger designs a different kind of sound for each note, an individual destiny and story.” (The New York Times) Do not miss this one-night engagement, with an extremely special unannounced bassist joining the fray at Jazz Standard!
