3. LYDIA LIEBMAN PROMOTIONS PRESS RELEASE
Featuring South African Trumpeter Feya Faku
“Jeff’s musicality is incredible. He is so tasty as a percussionist and he has become a fine composer/arranger.” – NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Heath
Artist Recording Collective (ARC) is proud to announce the January 17th release of “King of Xhosa” by renowned drummer and composer Jeff “Siege” Siegel. On the Jeff Siegel Quartet’s third studio recording, the stalwart drummer merges his high energy, straight ahead post-bop with the deeply spiritual stylings of trumpet master Feya Faku to produce a vibrant sonic tapestry of South African infused jazz. “King of Xhosa” brings together Siegel’s longstanding quartet comprised of saxophonist Erica Lindsay, pianist Francesca Tanksley, and bassist Rich Syracuse with percussionist Fred Berryhill and trumpeter extraordinaire Feya Faku. “King of Xhosa” (ARC-2710) will be celebrated at the Rosendale Cafe in Rosendale, New York on 1/21/17.
