PHOTO: ZACK SMITH | Heads up jazz and adventurous music lovers. Snug Harbor is the place to be on Saturday night for two sets by a new quartet playing music recently recorded in New Orleans for a debut album set to be released in early 2016.

The Modern Nolatet features Mike Dillon (pictured) on vibes, James Singleton on bass, Johnny Vidacovich on drums, and Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey’s Brian Haas on piano.

“The Modern Nolatet is the result of a Jazz Fest gig where the music and improv made us howl like dogs in the wild,” explains Dillon. “Playing with Johnny V. and James is still one of the best experiences for a musician who loves conversations on the bandstand. Throw in my nearly 20 years of playing with Brian and the musical gods from on high deemed it to be good and bountiful.”

The Snug Harbor show is part of a string of New Orleans dates for pianist Brian Haas who is also playing at The Maple Leaf tonight with Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Haas will round out his stay at Monday night’s ongoing Instant Opus Jazz Improv Series with Jason Marsalis and others at the Dragon’s Den.

The Modern Nolatet is set to release their debut album, Dogs, next year. It was recorded at Esplanade Studios and will be released by Royal Potato Family.

Show times at Snug Harbor are at 8 and 10 PM.
