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 from Germany, she has played with an impressive roster of some of the most influential contemporary jazz musicians in New York including Gretchen Parlato, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joel Frahm, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Michael Rodriguez, Rebecca Martin, Allison Miller, Sachal Vasandani, Helen Sung, Marcus Gilmore, and Dan Tepfer, among others. Iris's album, No Restrictions, won recognition from Downbeat Magazine on its Best Albums of 2013 list.

Her latest project is Iris Ornig's IO-5, a quintet formation that has captivated listeners around the world with its unique sound. Iris combines European tradition with expanded chord structures of modern jazz, blues inflections, improvised "riffs", swing rhythms, and call and response. The result is hybrid & fascinating, with plenty of surprises. The band consists of Jonathan Powell on trumpet, Jeremy Powell on tenor, Billy Test on piano, Iris Ornig bass/compositions, and Allan Mednard on drums.
