Join saxophonist and composer Jonathan Greenstein at Rockwood Music Hall in celebration of his forthcoming album Vol. 1, which is to be released Jan. 29th via Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit Records. Vol. 1 is the first installment in a series of three releases this coming year, and begins the cycle with its roots planted firmly in the modern jazz idiom with a wink of the grooves to come in Vol. 2, eventually concluding with a distinct new beat to be heard on Vol. 3. Greenstein describes the series as “an exploration of modern jazz drawn from a palette of modern sounds.” He goes on to explain that “Vol. 1 is a summarization of the past few years of my life and dreaming of what’s to come in song…it’s a quest to become part of the listeners life.” His influences range from rock and hip-hop to electronic and alternative- all of which can be heard in varying degrees on the jazz foundation he’s laid in Vol 1’s six tracks. Besides Greenstein, the album features guitarist Gilad Hekselman, pianist Victor Gould, bassist Or Bareket, and drummer Mark Whitfield Jr.
