Join us for an evening of jazz with Stephan Crump’s Rhombal.


“bristles with the unexpected and the lively” – Downbeat

The two-horn, bass and drums quartet will explore music from their debut recording, Rhombal, composed for Stephan Crump’s late brother, in addition to several newer works.

Rhombal features veteran explorer Ellery Eskelin on tenor saxophone engaging with brilliant young trumpeter Adam O’Farrill in the midst of the deep rhythm team chemistry Crump and Sorey have formed in collaboration for over a decade, primarily in Vijay Iyer’s ensembles. For this performance, the quartet welcomes back extraordinary drummer Richie Barshay.

Memphis-bred, Grammy-nominated bassist/composer Stephan Crump has lived in Brooklyn since 1994. As a longtime collaborator with adventurous jazz composers (since 1999 with Vijay Iyer) as well as guitar visionary Mary Halvorson and singer-songwriter Jen Chapin, he has become known for the elegance and purposeful groove of his acoustic and electric bass playing, and for transforming his instrument into a speaking entity with magnetic pull. As a composer, he is emerging as a singular voice. His music can be heard in numerous films and on his twelve critically acclaimed albums as leader.


Featured musicians:

Ellery Eskelin – tenor saxophone
Adam O’Farrill – trumpet
Kassa Overall – drums
Stephan Crump – acoustic bass/compositions
