San Diego, California (PRWEB) June 14, 2012
In a recently published review for the San Diego Reader, jazz critic Robert Bush writes, “The San Diego collective group known as Ensemble Off n On has just released their debut CD, and it's a wonderfully sloppy, yet virtuosic leap into the free-jazz world. Made up of guitarist Nate Jarrell, powerhouse drummer Jeanette Kangas and double bassist Harley Magsino, Ensemble Off n On combines originals with several out-of-the-box covers--including titles by Sun Ra, Ornette Coleman and Jimi Hendrix.”
On July 8, 2012, at 8pm, San Diego Center for the Arts will present a CD release concert featuring Ensemble Off n On. This event will also feature jazz singer Leonard Patton and ceramic artist Laura Hershey. The CD release concert will be held at 3rd Space in San Diego at 4610 Park Blvd, San Diego CA, 92116. The new Ensemble Off n On CD will be available for purchase at this event. It can also be purchased on CD Baby and Itunes. For more information please visit http://www.ensembleoffnon.com
Jeanette Kangas, aka Jeanette Wrate, who is featured on drums on this CD can also be heard on Jeanette Wrate and the Northern Lights Ensemble which can also be purchased on Itunes.
Jeanette has been described by Cadence Magazine as a “whirling dervish of rhythmic coloration”, an “exceptional drummer” by Jazz Times Magazine and a “creator of brilliant compositions and exquisite sound” by Modern Drummer Magazine, Jeanette Kangas (aka Wrate) has performed in major venues in Europe, Canada and the USA, including the Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz Festival at Sea, Playboy Jazz Festival, Freiburg Jazz Festival, Carnegie Hall, the Great American Music Hall, Zellerbach Hall and the Hollywood Bowl.
