True East is a collaboration between trombonist Dan Lehner (Avenida B, High and Mighty Brass Band, Karikatura), bassist Ran Livneh (Anbessa Orchestra, Friend Roulette) and drummer Zack O’ Farrill (Adam O’Farrill’s Stranger Days, Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra). A synthesis of post-bop jazz, Afro-Latino rhythms and indie rock sensibilities, True East is an expression of the idiosyncratic New York musical landscape, making music that is compact in execution and expansive in concept. The group has performed at a number of New York venues such as Barbes, Nublu, C'mon Everybody, Shapeshifter Lab and others. Its self-released debut, "First EP", is available on Bandcamp and a forthcoming, limited edition direct-to-vinyl EP will be forthcoming through the Leesta Vall music group.
