Thomas Champagne Random House
Living room concert
Belgian saxophonist Thomas Champagne will present his Random House. This quartet evolves non-stop in modern jazz. Their melodic, lyrical songs, inspired by joyous pop music, are combined with a strong New York influence, which is characterized by free structures and a contemporary sound.
For this concert, they invite trumpeter Adam O’Farrill, a rising star in the New York jazz scene. O’Farrill was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Born to a deep musical legacy. His grandfather is the legendary Afro-Cuban composer/arranger Chico O’Farrill and his father, the GRAMMY award-winning pianist/composer/activist Arturo O’Farrill! At 23 years old, he’s one of the most wanted trumpet players of the Big Apple. His album ‘Stranger Days’ released in 2016 has been acclaimed by the audience and the press. O’Farrill plays in the Rudresh Mahanthapp’s Bird Calls and Stephan Crump’s Rhombal. He has also performed with Vijay Iyer, Mulatu Astatke, Mary Halvorson, Steve Lehman, Christian McBride, Jason Lindner, Samora Pinderhughes, Onyx Collective, and more.
