Eric Hofbauer, Dylan Jack, Tony Leva and Jerry Sabatini present a brand new collaborative effort called PERIOD PIECES. The result of having not played together for well over a year and going into the recording studio with as little information as possible has led to a raw, organic and beautiful collection of improvised pieces that best represent the emotions and growth of four musicians during a tumultuous period. Pre-order the album HERE!
I’m looking forward to releasing our second record, “The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man” on Creative Nation Music this June! Featuring Jerry Sabatini – trumpet, Eric Hofbauer – guitar, and Tony Leva – bass. It’s been about two and a half years since the release of our first album, “Diagrams”, and we’re excited to share this new music with you all.
“The music of the Dylan Jack Quartet is sufficiently robust and malleable that a change of instrumentation doesn’t alter the group’s core identity — in fact, it reveals new facets. Jack released Diagrams, the quartet’s debut, in 2017, with Todd Brunel on clarinet, bass clarinet and soprano saxophone. On The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man, the group returns with trumpeter Jerry Sabatini instead as the featured horn. Guitarist Eric Hofbauer and bassist Anthony Leva remain on board, joining the drummer-composer-leader in a set that is once again bristling with rhythmic intelligence and rich in dynamic contrast and ebb and flow.” – David Adler
The new duo record from Eric Hofbauer and Dylan Jack will be released on Creative Nation Music on Friday, September 20, 2019. The music draws from a list of composers from Duke Ellington to Ornette Coleman and Jackson Browne to Sting.
Join us on September 20th at the Chelmsford Center for the Arts at 7:30pm to celebrate the release of “Remains of Echoes.”
The new Dylan Jack Quartet record has been completed! Thanks to Warren Amerman over at The Rotary Records and the great trumpeter, Jerry Sabatini. The music is very different from Diagrams and greatly represents the evolution of the quartet’s rhythm section and myself as a composer.
I look forward to sharing this music with the world at the very beginning of 2020. CD release shows/events will be posted as the date gets closer.
Also, be on the lookout for a duo record by Eric Hofbauer and myself in late summer of this year!
Two very different concerts coming this October!
Come celebrate DJQ’s two year anniversary as part of the great Mandorla Music Series at Third Life Studio. Come join Eric Hofbauer, Todd Brunel, Tony Leva, and myself as we will be playing brand new compositions from our yet to be recorded album as well as music from our first record, Diagrams.
Then the next day, go down the street to the Longy School of Music and check out percussionist Andria Nicodemou and myself as we explore the world of field recordings through percussion.
