Pianist NOAH HAIDU Reaches New Expressive Heights with Infinite Distances out 2/10/2017 on Cellar Live

Lyrical, intricate album features Sharel Cassity, Jon Irabagon, Jeremy Pelt with two tight, versatile rhythm sections

Haidu’s third outing includes bold originals and a 6-part suite inspired by a passage from poet Rainer Maria Rilke:

“….between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist”

Earning praise from Jazzwise as “unquestionably one of the most confident and impressive of all the new pianists,” Brooklyn-based pianist Noah Haidu returns after his well-received Posi-Tone releases Slipstream (2011) and Momentum (2013) with the expansive and ambitious Infinite Distances. Distances explores a concept inspired by a conversation with saxophonist Branford Marsalis, who quoted the writer and philosopher Rainer Maria Rilke in reference to another musician whom he was very close to, but also quite far from.

With a rich ensemble sound and subtly powerful arrangements, the date features alto saxophonist Sharel Cassity, soprano/tenor saxophonist Jon Irabagon, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and an august rhythm section with drummer John Davis and bassist Ariel Alejandro de la Portilla (four of 11 tracks feature Peter Brendler on bass and Mark Ferber on drums).
