    Watch: Sam Gendel Performs Qobuz Facebook Live

    Sam Gendel performed a Facebook Live concert for Qobuz USA from his home in Los Angeles this afternoon. He played music from his recently released Nonesuch debut album, Satin Doll, and more. You can watch it again here:

     

    On Satin Doll, a futuristic homage to historical jazz, three musicians—Gendel on saxophone and other things, Gabe Noel on electric bass, and Philippe Melanson on electronic percussion—engage in simultaneous synchronized sonic construction/deconstruction of well-known jazz standards, including Miles Davis's "Freddie Freeloader," Charles Mingus's "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat," and Duke Ellington's "Satin Doll." "A woozy, blissfully twisted album," says the Los Angeles Times.

    To pick up a copy of Satin Doll head to your local record store's website, the Nonesuch Store, iTunes, and Amazon, and listen at Spotify, Apple Music, and Bandcamp.
