NYC-based quintet Cowboys & Frenchmen presents a new take on instrumentation, orchestration, and composition for the jazz quintet. The front line of two alto saxophones plays loose with the role of horns, in an inclusive post-bop style that seamlessly crosses the classic American song book with blues and improvisation.
The band is comprised of five creative musicians. Owen Broder on alto sax, clarinet and bass clarinet, Ethan Helm on alto sax, flute and clarinet, Chris Ziemba on piano, Ethan O'Reilly on bass, and Matt Honor on drums.
The inspiration for the quirky band name is a short film by David Lynch called “The Cowboy and The Frenchmen.” The film is a Western – but with a unique, out-there interpretation of that classic genre. Similarly, this quintet’s music has one foot firmly planted in a genre, while the other one is busy trying to kick down the genre’s door.
This concert celebrates the release of their new album, Bluer Than You Think.
