The Noah Preminger Quartet — Preminger on tenor saxophone, Frank Kimbrough on piano, John Hebert on bass and Matt Wilson on drums – will record Preminger’s original music, a few Ornette Coleman tunes, some obscure American songbook ballads as well as compositions by fellow bandmates. The session will be produced by Matt Balitsaris at Maggie’s Farm, and the CD will be released in early 2011.
Preminger, now 24, began receiving critical raves almost immediately after hitting the scene with “Dry Bridge Road.” It was heralded as the “jazz debut of the year,” by The Village Voice Critic’s Poll,and earned a place as one of the “Top 10 Jazz Albums of the Year” from critics across the globe.
Preminger has since taken New York by storm, earning a nomination for “Up and Coming Jazz Artist of 2009” from the Jazz Journalists Association, and performing worldwide with Dave Liebman, John McNeil, George Cables, Nat Reeves, Dave Douglas, Joel Frahm, Dave Holland, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Danilo Perez, Billy Hart, Kendra Shank, Jim McNeely, Roscoe Mitchell, Bob Nieske, Tony Moreno, and Bob Moses among others.
In addition to the Noah Preminger Quartet and Sextet, Noah performs with Cecil McBee’s “Transcend” Group, Rob Garcia 4, the John McNeil Group, the Dana Lauren Group and more. Preminger earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the New England Conservatory in Boston and now lives in Brooklyn, NY.
