Our friend, the bassist and composer Yuriy Galkin releases his album Nine Of A Kind on the F-IRE label and is touring his nonet lineup (formerly the Symbiosis Orchestra) around the country. Go see him and this exceptional young band: Freddie Gavita (trumpet, flugelhorn), Steve Fishwick (trumpet, flugelhorn), Jon Stokes (trombone), George Crowley (tenor sax), Tamar Osborn (baritone and soprano saxes, bass clarinet), John Turville (piano), Dave Hamblett (drums) – and Russian Zhenya Strigalev (alto sax). Here are three tracks from the album.
