Zach Ferrara Octet

Zach Ferrara Octet

All original jazz compositions ranging in style from blues to hard bop to modal jazz!

‘Octet’ is electric bassist Zach Ferrara’s debut release as a leader. From front to back, all compositions are original works ranging in style from blues to hard bop to modal jazz. The group was tracked live in the studio, making for a very natural recording process that stays true to how an album of this sort would have been produced in previous years. Ferrara drives the seven other musicians through four long take tunes filled with heavy swing, energy, purpose, and stunning solos from very thoughtful improvisors. He is joined by drummer Gabriel Gordon, percussionist Mike Hickey, saxophonists Wayde Dazelle and Dan Denette, trumpeter Zach Schrowang, pianist Kevin Carey, and guitarist Jared Dirolf; all of who are names to remember. This record would sit well in any jazz collection.
