Fresh Cut Orchestra

In the fall of 2012, the Painted Bride Art Center commissioned trumpeter Josh Lawrence, bassist Jason Fraticelli and drummer Anwar Marshall to collaborate and compose new music for a large 10-piece ensemble. After its sold-out debut, the newly-formed Fresh Cut Orchestra was awarded a grant through the Pew Center’s Philadelphia Music Project and a recording is currently in post-production. Additionally, the core trio now hosts the monthly "Home Grown Gatherings" series at the Bride inviting featured guest artists to perform with them in an informal concert setting. The members of the Fresh Cut Orchestra are a few of the many great jazz talents the city of Philadelphia has to offer

Read "Mind Behind Closed Eyes" reviewed by Vic Albani

Come dice spesso Uri Caine che di Filadelfia se ne intende giacché ci è nato, una delle migliori caratteristiche dei musicisti di quel posto è il senso del ritmo che, sorprendentemente, tutti i musicisti dell'area portano quasi geneticamente con sé. La Fresh Cut Orchestra è il risultato dell'incontro che il trombettista Josh Lawrence, il ...

Read "Mind Behind Closed Eyes" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki

It's difficult to believe that the rich, full Mind Behind Closed Eyes is only the second release from jny:Philadelphia's Fresh Cut Orchestra; it sounds so much more developed and mature than that. Composed by the Orchestra's core trio of drummer Anwar Marshall, bassist Jason Fraticelli and trumpeter Josh Lawrence, and rounded out by a host of ...

Dave Fiuczynski Flam! Blam! Pan-Asian Microjam! RareNoise Records 2016 Simultaneously dedicated to 20th century classical composer Olivier Messiaen and legendary rap and hip-hop producer J Dilla, Flam! Blam!

La Fresh Cut Orchestra è un ensemble di dieci giovani musicisti di stanza a Filadelfia guidato dal trombettista Josh Lawrence (Erykah Badu, Orrin Evans), dal bassista Jason Fraticelli (Mark Guiliana) e dal batterista Anwar Marshall (Kurt Rosenwinkel, Dave Douglas).

In late 2012, the Painted Bride Art Center of Philadelphia commissioned local musicians Jason Fraticelli (bass), Anwar Marshall (drums) and Josh Lawrence (trumpet) to collaboratively compose new music for a ten-piece ensemble. “The Painted Bride contacted us about putting together this music, and we all agreed pretty much from the get-go about who we wanted to ...

Here's a jny: Philadelphia band that offers a novel perspective on large ensemble jazz with ever-so-slight inclinations toward the outside realm, which is just enough to present an enlivening aspect to these nine diversely enacted tracks. Sadly, “The Mothers' Suite" compositions relate to the tragic passing of bassist Jason Fraticelli's mother-in-law, shortly before the birth of ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
