Igor Lumpert Innertextures
A prodigious talent of Slovenian jazz and one of the most sought-after artists on the New York jazz scene, Lumpert’s latest project features Greg Ward, an old friend and fellow musician. When in 2010, the Chicago-based alto sax player moved to New York, he happened to participate in a Crown Heights jam session led by Lumpert. This was an auspicious beginning to a joint venture with gigs across New York’s top venues. Lumpert premiered Quartet’s pre-recorded tracks in January 2016 as part of the DogEar Series at the Happylucky No.1 in Brooklyn. In May 2017 the album was recorded with extended line-up in Brooklyn’s Bunker Studio.
