The Aaron Irwin Trio performs new compositions from “Wobegon,” recently released on Fresh Sound New Talent. Irwin’s music explores the lines between composed and improvised music with modern combinations of group interplay, unusual strong structures, and an unexpected tinge of nostalgia. 
“Irwin’s command over the music is immaculate, as he leads his group through his harmonious universe with the style and grace of a truly great musician. His original compositions are astonishing in their beauty and his work with a pair of classics is similarly stunning.”  – Blogcritics Magazine (Jordan Richardson)
Jeff Hirshfield is an American jazz drummer. Hirshfield studied under Ed Soph. He worked for the Joffrey Ballet in 1976-77 and then played with Mose Allison. During the 1980s he worked with Red Rodney and Ira Sullivan, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and Bennie Wallace. Alongside Fred Hersch and Steve LaSpina, he was a member of the trio Etc. during 1988-91. During this time he also played in a trio with Hersch and Michael Formanek. From 1990 he played with Harold Danko, played in Formanek’s Wide Open Spaces project, and played again with LaSpina in a quartet setting. He also worked in a quartet with John Abercrombie and Andy LaVerne early in the 1990s. In the mid-1990s he played in a trio with Marc Copland and Dieter Ilg, another trio with Tim Berne and Formanek, and the Lan Xang ensemble with David Binney, Donny McCaslin, and Scott Colley.
