    James Farm Appears on WNYC's "Soundcheck" in Advance of Four-Night Run at Jazz Standard
    Jimmy Katz

    James Farm—the collaborative band featuring saxophonist Joshua Redman, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Matt Penman, and drummer Eric Harland—is today's guest on Soundcheck, the daily music show from New York NPR member station WNYC. Tune in today at 2 PM ET on 93.9 FM in New York and streaming live online at wnyc.org.

    The quartet sets up shop at the Jazz Standard in New York City this week for a four-night residency, which runs from Thursday to Sunday and marks the close of the group's spring tour. New York Times music critic Nate Chinen, in a preview of this week's shows, says the band members "share a fondness for sleek convolution and introspective groove. As on their impressive new debut, self-titled and on the Nonesuch label, they’ll reach here for a cohesive and conscientiously eclectic sound."

    The New York Times has previously called the James Farm album "a model of dazzling proficiency." The album uses traditional acoustic jazz quartet instrumentation for its song-based approach to jazz and incorporates the members’ myriad influences: rock, soul, folk, classical, electronica. To pick up a copy, head to the Nonesuch Store, where orders include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the album at checkout.

    James Farm reunites this summer for performances at Caramoor and the Newport and Monterey jazz festivals. For more on these and other upcoming shows by the band, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.
