Perdue, Shores & Harlos has expanded into a quartet, with the addition of pianist Andrew Moroz (who also plays a mean trombone, just not on these recordings). I’m very excited about the possibilities of this group – we’ll be debuting the new lineup on Friday, Nov. 5th at 51 Main. Come check it out!
In the meantime, here’s a few initial run-through rehearsal recordings:
Justin Perdue – guitar; Jeremy Harlos – bass; Travis Shores – drums; Andrew Moroz – piano
Don’t miss the trio’s debut as a quartet:
Friday, November 5, 9pm-midnight at 51 Main
The Justin Perdue Quartet explores the interplay of guitarist Justin Perdue’s modal jazz flights with the post-bop virtuosity of pianist Andrew Moroz – all over the grooves of bassist Jeremy Harlos and drummer and hand percussionist Travis Shores’ intense, multi-layered African, Middle Eastern and jazz rhythms. This adventurous band of seasoned jazzmen delves into everything from Indian ragas to funky soul jazz as they push the envelope of improvisation with their unique repertoire of original compositions.
