Oddjob Ensemble CD Release w/ Barrio Manouche and Cabbagehead
Oddjob Ensemble will be releasing their brand new full length album "The Silver Sea" after being on the road for 2 months on their first National Tour! Oddjob Ensemble had to postpone the original CD release show due to the fires. Joining them will be the amazing Barrio Manouche and Cabbagehead! Barrio Manouche: Barrio Manouche is an acoustic San Francisco-based international septet (Spain, Quebec, France, Brazil and California) playing music that will take you on a magical journey, frequently joined by artists from around the globe. The San Francisco based ensemble has been recognized for its surprise concerts, innovative style, complex technique, and their passion for their musical improvisation. Cabbagehead: Cabbagehead is comprised of instrumentalists from across the North, East, and SF Bay area in California. Showgoer's have described the band as "Spazz Jazz" and "Prog Bop". The group combines a jazz education with a punk rock energy; a progressive rock mindset with a hard bop vibe; from an arrangement perspective, nothing is off limits. Every rehearsal is a collective brainstorm; no material gets out without serious re-arrangement and occassional unexpected humor. The band's focus is original, improvisation-driven music and cover material ranges from Frank Zappa to Duke Ellington and everything in between.
