Philly based jazz ensemble Fresh Cut Orchestra formed in fall of 2012 when the Painted Bride Arts Center commissioned a performance by trumpeter Josh Lawrence, bassist Jason Fraticelli and drummer Anwar Marshall. The orchestra recently released their debut album, From the Vine, while the core trio hosts a monthly concert series at the Painted Bride, featuring other guest artists and educational workshops. In December 2013, the orchestra was awarded the Kimmel Jazz Residency, through which they played a work-in-progress performance and hosted two educational workshops at the SEI Innovation Studio. They will play a finished performance on June 21st. Join FOC at Underground Arts along with the Dan Monaghan Quartet and Ensemble Novo for a night of jazz innovation; get tickets and more information at the XPN Concert Calendar.
