With autumn upon us, I'd like to welcome you to a weekend of CD release concerts for my quintet, the Sofferman Perspective. I am releasing a new double live CD on Head Ease Sounds called "Symposium," and these concerts will feature music from the recordings, and new material. I've picked three contrasting locations for you to hear us, all of which are great rooms for live music, so I hope at least one of these concerts is conveniently located.
Joining me will be the quintet from the new CD:
- Rick DiMuzio- saxophones
- Phil Grenadier- trumpet
- Phil Sargent- guitar
- Will Slater- bass
- Brooke Sofferman- drums
