“Our artists endeavor towards producing works which will reveal the best that fearless and idealistic thinkers can achieve in art music.” —Greg Osby

NEW YORK, New York: On September 12-14 and 16, Greg Osby’s independent record label, Inner Circle Music, will present eleven of its daring and forward-thinking artists in live performance in the form of a dynamic and highly varied music festival.

Greg Osby himself will appear with his own band, along with a slew of established and up-and-coming creative jazz musicians and composers from the U.S., Chile, Portugal, Israel, Greece, and Korea. From the magical and devastatingly pure sounds of vocalist Sara Serpa, to the classically influenced yet playful compositions of pianist Jason Yeager, to the lyricism and technical prowess of tenor saxophonist Melissa Andana, Inner Circle Music endeavors to fulfill the needs of creative music loving consumers through inspired, self produced works.

Greenwich Village’s beloved Cornelia Street Café (21 Cornelia Street) will house the festival for the first three nights (September 12-14) from 8:30pm-11:30pm each night, with a cover of $10 per set. Known for hosting New York’s most enticing and provocative acts, Cornelia Street Café has been deemed by the city of New York “a culinary as well as a cultural landmark.” Brooklyn’s new progressive performance space and studio, Shapeshifter Lab (18 Whitewall Place), will close out the festival on September 16 from 6:00-11:00pm, $15 cover for the entire night.

Wrote Ben Ratliff (New York Times) of Osby and Inner Circle Music, “Recording and releasing new albums by other artists he admires…he is a walking recommendation engine…It's from [Osby’s] bandstands that I first learned about some of the better New York jazz musicians of the last 10 years: the pianist Jason Moran, the drummers Rodney Green and Eric Harland, the bassists Tarus Mateen and Matt Brewer.”

Scheduled artists/bandleaders: André Matos (guitar), Tammy Scheffer (voice), Sara Serpa (voice), Jason Yeager (piano), Petros Klampanis (bass), Greg Osby (alto saxophone), Aubrey Johnson (voice), Evan Weiss (trumpet), JB Jangeun Bae (piano), Joseph Lepore (bass), and Melissa Aldana (tenor sax).
