Dizzy's Club

Josh Lawrence & Fresh Cut Orchestra present

Festival of New Trumpet Music

With bandleader/trumpeter Josh Lawrence, special guest trumpeters Terell Stafford, Duane Eubanks, John Swana, Arnetta Johnson, and Leon Jordan Jr., pianist Brian Marsella, bassist Jason Fraticelli, drummer Anwar Marshall, and percussionist Arturo Stable.

The Fresh Cut Orchestra (FCO) is a hip, mid-sized band whose slogan reads “The best in electronic jazz music from Philadelphia.” Led by trumpeter Josh Lawrence, the FCO fuses a wide range of jazz influences into an eclectic but distinctive blend that honors much of jazz’s history while also incorporating contemporary influences from numerous genres. Though extended solos appear regularly—allowing different members to significantly steer the energy of each piece—the diverse compositions are what give the group its unique character. Tonight’s performance will celebrate the history and future sounds of the trumpet in Philadelphia—and it features a powerhouse group of special guest trumpeters, including Terell Stafford, Duane Eubanks, John Swana, Arnette Johnson, and Leon Jordan Jr.

The FCO’s return to Dizzy’s Club is part of the Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT Music), a nonprofit organization founded by renowned trumpeter Dave Douglas. The FONT Music festival is an invaluable platform for trumpeters to present creative new music across all genres, but this show isn’t just for the hardcore trumpet fans; anyone interested in checking out some of the freshest sounds in the city should stop by.
