Iris Ornig Quintet
(Published: October 14, 2013)
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 music highlights all the members - Dave Smith on trumpet, Adam Larson on sax, Daisuke Abe on guitar and Pete Zimmer 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.
Her latest CD, "No Restrictions", features Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Rodriguez, Helen Sung and Marcus Gilmore. The recording has earned extremely positive reviews from Downbeat, Jazziz, All About Jazz, and The New York City Jazz Record, just to name a few. http://www.irisornig.com
