Sirius Quartet will be performing the piece at Club Bonafide in NYC on Thursday, June 15 at 9:30pm and at The Garage on Friday, June 16 at 7pm.
In celebration of Richie Beirach’s 70th and my 50th birthday ACT released the album Richie Beirach & Gregor Huebner Live at Birdland New York. The reviews came rolling in and we are proud of the response. Here’s a great quote.
“If you like exciting, small group jazz, played by absolute masters at the peak of their art, and if you are planning to buy only one CD this year, then make it this one. For this disc – issued to mark the 70th birthday of pianist Beirach and the 50th of violinist Huebner – is the most engaging small group recording I’ve heard in recent times.”
