About Eddie Barbash:

Hailed by Jon Batiste as “one of the world’s most important saxophonists, with the unique ability to deliver pure melody through his horn,” Eddie Barbash was a founding member of the house band for the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and currently tours the world with Cory Wong and the Wongnotes. His unmistakable sound is featured on the Oscar-winning soundtrack of Soul. He has performed at venues ranging from Carnegie Hall to Madison Square Garden to the Village Vanguard and has headlined both the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and the Umbria Jazz Festival. Barbash’s versatile sound has led him to collaborate with musicians in many styles. At 18 he joined the sextet of legendary jazz drummer Chico Hamilton and the quintet of emerging jazz star Jon Batiste. In his 20’s he fell in love with American traditional music and began touring with bluegrass phenom Sierra Hull. He’s a frequent guest with funk band Vulfpeck and indie rocker Sam Evian. In 2016 he performed a duet on national TV with Yo-Yo Ma and he performs regularly with chamber choir Amor Artis.

As a leader, Eddie has released 4 albums: “For Murray and Lillian”, a collection of crooning melodies dedicated to his late grandparents, arranged by Kyle Athayde for an octet of four strings and jazz quartet; “Eddie Barbash Live Parts 1-4”, a selection of the best performances of 6 years of leading bands in NYC; and most recently “Live With Jim, Joe, and Dave”, a snapshot of one night of improvised music in Brooklyn, recorded directly to tape in one of the borough’s hippest local haunts.
