AMINA FIGAROVA SEXTET: “JOY” Record Release

Sun October 9 @ 8:00 pm

Hailing from Azerbaijan, the New Orleans by way of New York based Amina Figarova is an internationally influenced—and recognized—composer, pianist, and bandleader. Those three roles come to the forefront in Figarova’s sextets, bands with a remarkable chemistry that brings her detailed arrangements to life. Every member of the group stands out as a first-rate individual, but their dedication to Figarova’s eclectic and powerful compositions gives the group its depth of feeling and elite status. The Amina Figarova Sextet has been a hit at major festivals like the Newport Jazz Festival and New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Due out September 23rd, 2022 on AmFi Records, Figarova seeks to inspire a more optimistic and positive future on her stunning new album, “JOY.”  Joy is a return to the acoustic piano setting following the groove-heavy electronic excursion of her previous album, 2020’s “Persistence.” In addition to the incredible musicians named in the band tonight, New Orleans vocalist and songwriter Sasha Masakowski also makes an appearance.
