Adam Larson's "Simple Beauty" CD release

Adam Larson's Simple Beauty CD release

The highly-anticipated debut album, “Simple Beauty”, from New York City based saxophonist Adam Larson is set to release January 16th, 2013. The ten original compositions featured (eight to Larson’s credit) comprise the foundation of the Adam Larson Quintet repertoire, having been developed, re-vamped and nit-picked during his time as an undergraduate student at The Manhattan School of Music.

Embracing a “chemistry above all” attitude, Adam enlisted his most trusted musical sidemen for the undertaking of recording this set of music. “It’s something I thought about a lot when preparing to record this album. I’ve been very fortunate to work with and develop relationships with several amazing musicians over the past few years. I picked the individuals who I knew were deeply invested in the music, the band’s vision, and who were right for the job” says Larson. Those right for this project were pianist Can Olgun, bassist Raviv Markovitz, drummers Jason Burger and Guilhem Flouzat, and Larson’s most like-minded musical cohort; guitarist Nils Weinhold.

Intertwining a number of musical influences, the material on this record reveals Larson’s intrigue for use of compositional devices such as mixed-meter and elongated song form. “Like many artists, I want my music to connect with as many people as I can. I’m hopeful that the music on this album will have a little something for everyone-that being said, I don’t feel we sacrificed anything artistically speaking, in the process of attempting to appeal to a larger number of people; music is music and I’m excited to share this music, and these fantastic musicians with the world!”

Be one of the first to hear the record in action at Adam Larson’s CD release party!  Midnight the day of January 16th, 2013 at Smalls Jazz Club NYC.  
Larson’s album will officially be available January 16th, 2013 via I-tunes, CD Baby, and physical distribution at www.adamlarsonjazz.com
