Brooklyn-based pianist/composer Jesse Fischer is excited to be back at BRIC TV, playing his signature blend of soul jazz and world fusion. Known for his warm, soulful touch, earworm melodies, and head-nodding grooves, Jesse has performed at jazz festivals around the world, from South Africa to Dubai to the Netherlands. Jesse's latest album Day Dreamer was released in 2015 on Ropeadope Records and features guest appearances from trumpeter Takuya Kuroda, alto saxophonist Godwin Louis, and vocalist Sarah Elizabeth Charles. His Herbie Hancock / Head Hunters tribute project Vein Melter was lauded by tastemakers around the world such as BBC's Gilles Peterson and KCRW's Anthony Valadez, released in 2015 via the British label Tru Thoughts. Jesse is also a prolific producer, engineer, remix artist and songwriter and owns a boutique recording studio in Brooklyn, Electrik Indigo Sound.
B-Side is BRIC TV's live in-studio music series and screening, featuring performances from emerging and established musicians on Thursday evenings – free of charge. The in-studio seating is very limited and first come, first served. RSVPs do not guarantee entry and are used solely for measuring attendance. These performances are open to the public, however our studio space is limited. For this reason, the performance will be broadcasted on the Stoop simultaneously.
