ORIGIN ON THE RADIO

Lots of great airplay coming in for Origin and OA2 titles over the last several months, with Nick Finzer's The Chase (still in the Top 60 after 7 months at radio and 16 weeks in the Top 40!) leading the way. Ben Paterson's organ trio debut, For Once In My Life has been in the Top 60 for 2 months, and more recently, Tom Collier 's Across the Bridge with Bill Frisell and Larry Coryell, shot up into the Top 50 in it's 2nd week at radio and is getting widespread play across the country.

Legendary Bassists Record Together

David Friesen and Glen Moore, two of the more influential bassists in jazz, recently teamed for a tour through Europe concluding with their 3rd duo recording over the last 40 years. Add the decade between their initial meeting up in Seattle in the '60s before their first recording, 1977's In Concert (Vanguard), and the total time they've been working together comes to 50 years. Named for the two-humped camel native to the steppes of central Asia, Bactrian offers ample new proof that these old friends continue to take great glee in surprising and challenging each other, their listeners, and themselves. Street date is November 20th, but look for it on sale here at the beginning of October.

Gail Pettis Tours Russia

Seattle vocalist Gail Pettis recently completed her second stellar tour of Russia over the last year. Playing to sold-out houses throughout central Russia, Pettis is developing material for her third recording in time for her next tour in Spring 2016.

New Release From Laurie Antonioli & Richie Beirach

With the amazing reception Laurie Antonioli received for her 2014 release, Songs of Shadow, Songs of Light: Music of Joni Mitchell, (including from Joni herself!), she decided to follow up with something entirely different. Rekindling a duo relationship she's carried on with master pianist Richie Beirach over the last 25 years, Varuna reveals the exhilarating musical empathy they've developed over that time. As Stereoplay magazine said about their last collaboration, "The delicacies created by (Beirach and Antonioli) are simply extraordinary." Varuna hits stores on September 18th.

Sarah Partridge featured in the New York Times

Vocalist/composer Sarah Partridge's new recording I Never Thought I'd Be Here is hitting the streets in mid-March (available on our site now!).

Her first on Origin and the first featuring all original compositions is featured in a write-up in the New York Times.

Aaron Lington selected as a "2015 Silicon Valley Artist Laureate"

Baritone saxophonist, composer and OA2 Records artist Aaron Lington was selected as a "2015 Silicon Valley Artist Laureate" by the arts organization Silicon Valley Creates.

He was recognized in the "Off Stage" category which celebrates his achievements as a composer and arranger.

This is the 25th year of the Silicon Valley Artist Laureate program and places Lington among 140 of the best artists in Silicon Valley from the last quarter century.

Gail Pettis in More Magazine

Gail Pettis is featured in October's MORE Magazine. Gail is profiled under the heading "Freeing Your Inner Artist" in the issue that's available on every newsstand in the country, now!

The Endless Mysteries reviewed in the New York Times

New York Times' Nate Chinen called George Colligan's Origin Records debut, "One of the finer piano trio albums of 2013."

Our suggestion: Read the review and then buy the CD.
