Iris Ornig performs at Wölffer Estate Vineyard’s Twilight Thursdays
September 18, 2014 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pmNo Cover
Bassist & composer Iris Ornig is one of the most original female voices on today’s New York jazz scene. Since her arrival in New York City in 2003, she had played with an amazing roster of the most influential contemporary jazz musicians in NYC including Gretchen Parlato, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joel Frahm, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Rodriguez, Rebecca Martin, Allison Miller, Sachal Vasandani, Helen Sung, Marcus Gimore, Dan Tepfer, and many others.
Ornig’s new project, THE IO-5, highlights all the members – Dan Pratt on sax, Josh Deutsch on trumpet, Daisuke Abe on guitar, and Ronen Itzik on drums- in a mixed program of straight ahead and contemporary jazz originals and well-chosen pop covers. Ornig’s compositions are strikingly fresh, original and of the moment.
Thursdays are all about jazz in Wölffer’s tasting room. Live music starts at 5 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. No cover. Enjoy wines by the glass and bottle, and cheese/charcuterie plates for purchase, and drink in the view of the vineyard as the sun sets.
