The People Upstairs
By Joe Garrison & Night People
Something floral in the dimension of Anthony Braxton for this auspicious day.
Like all of the vast musical explorations on The People Upstairs, "Moving Day" seamlessly transits back and forth between tightly composed and radically improvised. The free-flowing excursion kicks off the new 5-song opus, the follow-up to 2013’s Veranda, which the San Diego Troubadour favorably compared to the ground-breaking work of Oliver Nelson, while NBC San Diego lauded it as one of the Top 10 jazz releases that year. Joining pianist/composer Joe Garrison on this immersive musical journey are acclaimed jazz and classical musicians, Lori Bell:flute; Dr. Ariana Warren: clarinet, bass clarinet; Derek Cannon: flugelhorn; Brian O’Donnell: bass trombone; Melonie Grinnell: piano; Tim McNalley: electric bass; Michael Hayes: drums; and New York French horn player Nicolee Kuester, who commissioned Garrison to compose the project.
