Album Description

Family. That's what comes to mind when describing the music on Greene Street Vol. 1, the follow up to Will Sellenraad's Balance. Growing up on Greene Street there has been a lot of changes. Amazingly though, the bond of friendship, music and growth for Sellenraad and many of his peers has remained very constant. Will has earned a growing reputation of being at the forefront of creative musicians working in New York City. Known for his brilliant improvisations and his compelling, melodic compositions, Sellenraad is a mainstay on the NYC scene, and beyond, appearing at storied jazz venues such as The 55 Bar, Smalls, Mezzrow, The Blue Note, Birdland, The Iridium, the former Sweet Basil and many others. Joining is bassist Rene Hart, who has recorded and performed with such artists as David Amram, Julian Priester, Don Braden, Myra Melford, James Hunter, Anat Fort, Pete Seeger, Bilal and many others. Rounded out by drummer Eric McPherson, who came to prominence apprenticing with legendary saxophonist and educator, Jackie McLean, and the innovative pianist and composer Andrew Hill. Those foundational experiences cultivated McPherson into one of the leading drummers in contemporary creative music. "With Greene Street Vol. 1, we are not trying to fit into any particular musical box, we are just developing our sound," says Sellenraad. "Every time we play it is a further exploration of that and we sincerely hope the listener enjoys this snapshot of where we're at!" Greene Street Vol. 1 was mixed with Ben Rubin and mastered by Alan Douches at West Side Music. Green Street Vol. 1 will be followed up shortly as Vol. 2 is already in the conception stage, and the guys have some wonderful new compositions percolating.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
