...“Sophisticated and artful” –Queensbuzz.com. Join us for the long-anticipated release of Mulberry Street, the debut album of Jeff Fairbanks' Project Hansori. With the album recorded in late 2009, and carefully edited over time, this event is over 18 months in the making. The venue, Moldy Fig, is a brand-new Jazz club in Manhattan's Lower East Side, that ---like Project Hansori--- is preparing for a grand opening of its own. ...The club is a work of art in itself, with a themed interior of strictly brick, wood, and brass, and a high ceiling over the stage and audience seating area. Copies of Mulberry Street will be available on site for $15 each. An exciting new sound of Asian folk music mixed with modern Jazz, 17-piece Jeff Fairbanks' Project Hansori performs the all original music of its leader. An in-demand composer and performer, and a recognized talent, Fairbanks has won national awards and recognition from ASCAP, BMI, IAJE, and numerous competitive grants from the American Music Center and the Queens Council on the Arts. Project Hansori's debut recording "Mulberry Street" is slated for release in June 2011. Featuring a cast of 22 including singular guest bari saxophonist Fred Ho, this album of Fairbanks' original compositions and arrangements fuses East and West in an imaginative new setting.
