9Volt, the avantgarde, jazz-based New York City trio who recently released Open Circuit, perform a record release show on Feb. 19 at Konceptions at Korzo. The outfit features a collection of New York's brightest
underground jazz players including trombonist Rick Parker, guitarist EyalMaoz and drummer Yonadav Halevy. All About Jazz said Parker is a "powerful young jazz musician to be reckoned with," adding "Parker and his band are the best-kept secret in New York right now." John Zorn described Maoz as "a cutting edge guitarist who combines the harmonic lyricism of Bill Frisell with the angst and skronk of Marc
Ribot... keep your eyes and ears on this guy." Halevy toured with Arnie Lawrence's band for six years and has been a widely coveted session player performing with Sheila Jordan, Joel Frahm and Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. Tim Berne guests on the album and will perform with 9Volt on Feb. 19.
Open Circuit, the trio's debut album, was recently released via OutNow Recordings. NYC Jazz Record described the album as "a synthesis of many things that define powerful 'new' music - electronics and other sound elements, very free improvisation and the passion of the world of rock." Open Circuit is now streaming via OutNow Recordings' BandCamp .
