The Margots (featuring John D. on guitar and Adrienne P. on vocals) will be hosting a listening party at the Palm Tavern (Milwaukee, WI) on Tuesday, June 11th at 9pm. Tim Daisy (drums) and Ken Vandermark (reeds) will also be present. Their new album Pescado will be shipping soon from Okka Disk!
This is the first JAZZ album pressed here at GGR, and it’s a pretty great musician to start the genre here. According to the Matt Nowlin Orchestra website, “The Good News!, the Matt Nowlin Jazz Orchestra’s debut LP, calls to mind Jimmie Lunceford and the arrangements of Sy Oliver, while bringing to the forefront a new voice in jazz writing. In the hands of composer Matt Nowlin, swing is a vibrant feeling rather than a bygone era.”
The record is streeting on October 26 nationally — both online and at independent record stores everywhere!
