About the Album

The anthemic, melody-rich "Cloud Break" is the first track from rising Canadian composer Daniel Hersog's first big-band recording "Night Devoid of Stars," out June 12, 2020 via Cellar Music. Featuring star soloists saxophonist Noah Preminger and pianist Frank Carlberg, the album showcases Hersog’s 16-piece Vancouver-based Daniel Hersog Jazz Orchestra in the leader’s richly melodic originals, plus an inventive, deep-blue arrangement of “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
