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. She has performed at jazz clubs and festivals all over the United States, Europe and East Africa. She can be heard regularly at NYC?s top jazz clubs such as 55 Bar, Garage and in February at the Kitano. Since arriving in New York, Iris has had the pleasure to work with such jazz notables as Gretchen Parlato, Danny Grissett, Gene Jackson, Tony Jefferson, Rebecca Martin, Sachal Vasandani, Joel Frahm, Cecilia Coleman, Allison Miller, Roberta Picket, Stacey Dillard, Klaus Mueller. Iris is also an active teacher and clinician. She currently teaches private lessons and ensembles.
The cover is 10 dollars with a one drink minimum. If you wish to stay for the rest of the night, there will be an additional 5 dollars for the whole night as well as one drink per set. This is a great deal!
AND... as an added incentive... if you bring a new member for the NYC Jazz Meetup you will have your Cover waived for the evening! (That's a dues paying member, not a guest :))
