After more than a decade since performing and recording as a bandleader, I'm very excited to announce a rare concert appearance of music from my new EP Things Are Looking Up. Please join us for this special event in which we'll perform the songs from Things... plus several new pieces which continue to explore the joyful, swinging, funky, groovy and sometimes quirky sounds of the Organ Quartet.
Austin performs regularly with Jerry Bergonzi and has recently performed and/or recorded with Sean Jones, George Garzone, Marquis Hill, Lionel Loueke, Ben Monder, Lage Lund, Kate McGarry, Noah Preminger, Jason Palmer and Alexa Tarantino. He has appeared as an opening act for Grammy award-winners Dianne Reeves and Esperanza Spalding.
On tour, Austin has performed at: Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Earshot Jazz Festival, Aspen Music Festival, Discover Jazz Festival, Cape Cod Jazz Festival, Bar Harbor Jazz Festival, Lake George Jazz Festival, Young Jazz in Town Festival (Foligno, Italy), Casa de Teatro Jazz Festival (Dominican Republic), Ballydehob International Jazz Festival (Cork, Ireland), as well as performing at jazz clubs, concert halls and theaters throughout the US, Italy, Germany, Finland, France, China and India.
