School of Music professor releases new jazz album

On February 15, Rich Pellegrin’s third album of original compositions was released on Origin Records. The album features a collaboration between his Seattle-based quintet and the Mizzou New Music Ensemble, recorded as part of an interdisciplinary festival he organized at the University of Missouri—the Mizzou Improvisation Project.

A review of the record will appear in the June issue of Downbeat Magazine. All About Jazz gave the album four stars and described the new music collaboration as “a rich, expansive, and beautifully-textured sound experience.” The release hit the JazzWeek charts at #128 and is rising quickly. More information on the album is available here.
