Dizzy's Club

Amina Figarova Sextet

Album Release Party

With pianist Amina Figarova, trumpeter Alex Pope Norris, tenor saxophonist Wayne Escoffery, flutist Bart Platteau, bassist Luques Curtis, and drummer Jason Brown

“…among the most important composers to come into jazz in the new millennium.” – JazzTimes

Composer, pianist, and world-class bandleader Amina Figarova celebrates her 13th album as a leader: Blue Whispers. Her band, the Amina Figarova Sextet, is a powerhouse group recognized for bringing Figarova’s lush and detailed arrangements to life with a remarkable chemistry. Though every band member stands out as an individual, these powerful compositions and arrangements provide the group a rare depth of feeling and elevate it to its elite status. It’s always a treat to have Figarova and company in the club, and we are particularly excited to hear more of Blue Whispers, as two of its songs were originally commissioned by Jazz at Lincoln Center for the New Jazz Standards concerts. With brand new material and the same musicians that audiences know and love, tonight’s two performances will demonstrate why Figarova is so widely recognized as a leading voice of the contemporary jazz canon.
