Jeff 'Siege' Siegel Sextet CD Release CelebrationArtist Recording Collective (ARC) is proud to announce the release of the album King of Xhosa, by renowned drummer and composer Jeff "Siege" Siegel, with this CD release concert/party at the Cafe. On the Jeff Siegel Quartet's third studio recording, the stalwart drummer merges his high energy, straight ahead post-bop; with the deeply spiritual stylings of trumpet master Feya Faku; to produce a vibrant sonic tapestry of South African infused jazz. King of Xhosa brings together Siegel's longstanding quartet, comprised of saxophonist Erica Lindsay, pianist Francesca Tanksley, and bassist Rich Syracuse... with percussionist Fred Berryhill and trumpeter extraordinaire Feya Faku.

Jeff will be joined by this band at this Cafe performance, with the substitution of trumpeter Dylan Canterbury.

All in all, King of Xhosa is a celebration of the intersection of cultures. Says Siegel, "I hope this music in some way reflects the deep respect I have for the great cultures of both Africa and the United States.  While we are profoundly aware of the great pain that resulted in the birth of Jazz music, born from the tragedy of slavery, we are forever blessed with the positive outcome of the joining of these cultures in music.  I pray that this recording shall add some positivity, inspiration and strength to a troubled world in whatever small way it can."

"Jeff's musicality is incredible. He is so tasty as a percussionist and he has become a fine composer/arranger." --NEA Jazz Master Jimmy Heath
