Iris Ornig is a gifted instrumentalist, a talented composer and a charismatic performer.
Her compositions are swinging, stormy, melodic, sensitive, playful, angular and straight-ahead with plenty of twists and surprises.
Iris is originally from Germany. She studied jazz and popular music in St. Gallen Switzerland and went from there to the well-known Guildhall School in Music and Drama in London to establish her musical skills. In 2003 she moved to New York City where she is working as an arranger, composer and bandleader.
Tonight she will be playing with Brandon Wright sax, Dave Smith trumpet, Nir Felder guitar and Ronen Itzik on drums.
This is going to be an exceptional show! Iris is amazing and her band is first rate!
The Kitano is a $15 cover and a $15 food/drink minimum. The best jazz venue in the city!!!
