Jeremy Udden’s Plainville at Winter Jazz Fest

JUPM-e1-webJeremy Udden’s Plainville is featured as part of Winter Jazzfest at Kenny’s Castaways at 157 Bleecker street, in Manhattan on Friday, January 8th at 8:40 pm.

The band Plainville is Udden’s newest project and features a more folk-influenced twist, finding a niche on bills with country and folk groups as well as jazz, featuring Udden on sax, backed by a unique combination of pump organ/rhodes, banjo/guitar, bass and drums. Plainville is named for Udden’s home town in Massachusetts.

Described as “folk, rock, free build upon the underlying jazz” (JAZZMAN – France) and “an appealingly dreamy roots-jazz combo” by Time Out New York, Plainville is Udden’s most recent album on Fresh Sounds New Talent records (Spain) featuring: Pete Rende, pump organ/rhodes; Brandon Seabrook, banjo/guitar; Eivind Opsvik, bass; RJ Miller, drums; and Udden on saxophone.

Here’s what the press has to say about PLAINVILLE:

“Jazz for Wilco fans-a rural vibe that has a dash of a New England starkness to it, even when the aggression takes over.”

“Some of the freshest sounding jazz to appear in some time.” — THE VANCOUVER PROVINCE

“A pluralistic stylistic orientation (rock, free, folk build upon the underlying jazz) Udden has created a resolutely new music where eclecticism and personal experience play an important role.” — JAZZMAN (FRANCE)

“The soprano and alto saxophonist Jeremy Udden reaches for rusticity and sincerity on his warm new album, ‘Plainville’ (Fresh Sound New Talent), and sometimes he finds both…” — THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Melodic, ruminative, nostalgic and fresh at the same time.” — SEATTLE TIMES

“Plainville is an appealingly dreamy roots-jazz combo, driven by Pete Rende’s pump organ and Brandon Seabrook’s banjo” — TIME OUT NEW YORK
