Bassist Iris Ornig comes to the Parrish to celebrate the release of her new album, No Restrictions, continuing Jazz en Plein Air as one of the many talented musicians selected by the East End's legendary Richie Siegler, jazz musician and founding director of Escola de Samba BOOM. 

Bassist & composer, Iris Ornig, is one of the most original female voices on today's New York jazz scene. Since her arrival in New York City in 2003, she had played with an amazing roster of the most influential contemporary jazz musicians in NYC including Gretchen Parlato, Ambrose Akinmusire, Joel Frahm, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Rodriguez, Rebecca Martin, Allison Miller, Sachal Vasandani, Helen Sung, Marcus Gimore, Dan Tepfer, and many others.

Ornig’s new project, THE IO-5, highlights all the members – Dan Pratt on sax, Josh Deutsch on trumpet, Daisuke Abe on guitar, and Ronen Itzik on drums- in a mixed program of straight ahead and contemporary jazz originals and well-chosen pop covers. Ornig’s compositions are strikingly fresh, original and of the moment.

Her latest CD, “No Restrictions”, features Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mike Rodriguez, Helen Sung and Marcus Gilmore. The recording has earned extremely positive reviews from Downbeat, Jazziz, All About Jazz, and The New York City Jazz Record, to name a few.

The Golden Pear Café at the Parrish will be serving $10 Fresh Strawberry Margaritas, $8 Prosecco, and $5 Corona as well as a BBQ Buffet for purchase throughout the evening. Come socialize and soak in the scenery while enjoying the cool tunes. 

Seating is limited and first come first served. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs and blankets to enjoy the live music from the terrace and the events lawn.

All Jazz en Plein Air concerts are free with Museum admission and take place rain or shine.
