Starting in July 2015 I will be in the pit orchestra for "Memphis". It is the story of Rock and Roll's development in Memphis, TN during the 1940s and 50s. There is a 9 week run with a one week break. As expected, I will not be playing out as much during that time. The last show is September 20th, 2015.
The Jason Passmore quartet will be returning to the studio to record a 2nd CD of original material. I expect to be in the studio by August with a release date of (hopefully) Jan. 2015. Onward and upward.
The next Odyssey Music Project Cd is almost done...I'm in the mixing /mastering stage and this record will sound awesome. I am also in the process of releasing a "Live CD" of my Quartet. That won't happen until June/July 2014. Lots of exciting things are happening.
The Jason Passmore Quartet went to Comcast Studios and recorded a 45 min show that will air on "Atlanta Jazz and Blues" on Comcast 25 and on TV47.com. The footage will be used mostly for promotion, but you may see some items for sale.
Here was the lineup for the session
Jason Passmore: Woodwinds Scott Ulmer: piano LA Tuten Bass Jared Lanham: Drums
Due to the amount of material already recorded, I will be releasing multiple CDS within the next 3-6 months. Everything from a smooth jazz CD to ambient electronic. There is even another JPQ CD planned.
After some thought and seeking out opinions, These release will be digital releases. I will make hard copies for promotional purposes only.
From now until the end of 2013, you can a free download of one of the tracks from the latest project. It's called "Jody's Theme". All you have to do is sign up for the mailing list. I'll keep everyone updated on the latest happenings in the musical world of Jason Passmore. Come and get it.
