New Orleans International Sound Exchange in conjunction with the Open Ears Music Series is proud to present Long Sidewalks in concert at The Blue Nile (532 Frenchmen St, New Orleans) on Tuesday, September 17, 2013, at 10 PM. Long Sidewalks is a musical group assembled by trombonists Jeb Bishop and Jeff Albert. In 2006, Bishop and Albert formed the critically acclaimed band Lucky 7s, as a way to bring together members of the New Orleans and Chicago musical communities (visit www.lucky7s.org for more info on that band). Long Sidewalks is the New Orleans based next step in their collaboration, and will feature Bishop on trombone, Albert on trombone and laptop, Rex Gregory and Ray Moore on woodwinds, Helen Gillet on cello, Chris Alford on guitar, Jesse Morrow on bass, and Marcello Benetti on drums.

Jeb Bishop began playing improvised music in Chicago in 1993, after a journey that had taken him from his native North Carolina to Arizona to Chicago to Belgium and back to Chicago over the span of about three years. Over the next twenty years, he became a mainstay of Chicago’s new jazz and improvised music scene, and developed an international reputation through numerous recordings and by touring extensively in North America and Europe with many ensembles. In 2012, he moved back to North Carolina, completing a kind of circle, but continues to travel often and widely to perform. The name Long Sidewalks is an acknowledgement of the path that always lies ahead of the working improvising musician in the 21st century, a path that is unending as long as the musician decides to keep walking it.

This will be the band’s premier performance, and they will go into the studio the following day to record this music for a forthcoming LP. This group features three musicians recognized in the most recent DownBeat Critics Poll (Bishop, Albert, and Gillet), and it marks the reunion of Bishop and Albert, with a new cast of accomplices, who are among the cream of the crop of New Orleans based improvisers.

Our summer home

Our regular home, The Blue Nile Balcony Room, is undergoing major renovations this summer, so we will not be presenting concerts there in the second half of July or August. Fortunately we have a fine summer home at The Circle Bar, 1032 St. Charles Ave. Please join us for our regularly scheduled programming in our new summer home. (It feels kind of classy to have a “summer home.” It’s like we get to go to the Hamptons or something.)

**Note: there is no Open Ears programming on August 13, but there is a show that night at the Circle Bar, so you should go anyway.
