Dear Friends of the Microscopic Septet:

Watch this space for information about the new Microscopic Septet CD, Manhattan Moonrise.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise $10,000 to record their first new CD containing new original material since 1998, Joel Forrester and Phillip Johnston, and the amazing saxophonic pyrotechnics of the band once called 'New York's most famous unknown band' return from their niche market once more.

We hope you will be able to join us for our CD-release party on June 12th at 9.30PM at Small's Jazz Club in New York City
