Plainville native and Brooklyn resident Jeremy Udden will celebrate the release of his sixth album, “Wishing Flower (Sunnyside Records), on Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. at Preservation Framer, 31 North Washington St. in North Attleborough.
The quintet, featuring some of the most sought-after musicians in jazz—including Bridget Kearney of Lake Street Dive on bass—will play originals from Udden’s new release.
Udden, who “lends a haunting sheen to tunes spanning the soothingly melodic to the jaggedly free” (Modern Drummer) describes the new record:
“Looking at my creative output so far, I see my compositions tending towards autobiography rather than about something specifically musical.
This album title refers to walking my daughter home from school in Brooklyn, and her joy in finding ‘Wishing Flowers’ or dandelions in the cracks or empty lots – she just naturally finds beauty in the grime of the city.
The music is sort of divided into meditations and energetic rockers – maybe reflective of parenting, or perhaps of living my adult life in Brooklyn after growing up in the ruralism of Plainville, Massachusetts.
I have made music with Ben, Jorge, and Ziv for 15-20 years.  A new sonic addition is my use of the Lyricon – an analog wind synthesizer invented in Massachusetts in the late 1970s.  I’ve played it for a long time, but never used it prominently on a record.  Some of these compositions seemed to ask for a different voice articulating melody.”
The concert will be held at 7 p.m, Preservation Framer, 31 N. Washington St., North Attleborough. More info can be found at www.jeremyudden.com.
