Bassist and composer Iris Ornig has just released her third solo album, entitled Storyteller. The record features a quintet with Jonathan Powell on trumpet, Jeremy Powell on tenor sax, Addison Frei on piano and Allan Mednard on drums.
Raised in Germany and currently based in New York City, Ornig’s blend of European tradition with American style creates a unique hybrid of jazz. Of course, there’s plenty of great bass playing, to boot.
Check out the album’s invigorating opener, “25”:
