NEPTUNE PHILHARMONIC brings a new sonic palette to jazz, bebop, and Latin standards by masters such as Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, and Antonio Carlos Jobim.
Keyboardist Bram Moreinis, known to mid-Hudson audiences for his whimsical performances as a member of the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Quartet with Gus Mancini, played more recently at the Red Hook Inn with Generations. Steve Hammer, more often heard as a classical oboist in Boston, New York City, and around Columbia County at Bard College and with the Columbia Festival Orchestra, plays with NEPTUNE PHILHARMONIC on the Yamaha WX7 wind synthesizer, offering a wide variety of sounds ranging from trumpet, flute, sax, and bass imitations to strangely beautiful electronica. Drummer David Weitz, a veteran Kingston-area musician, combines his backgrounds in jazz, rock, African, middle Eastern, Latin, and North Indian classical percussion to create exotic conga/djembe stylizations of jazz standards.
NEPTUNE PHILHARMONIC was formed in 2006, and is based in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York State, not too far from Sonny Rollins’ house.
