Formed during Harris Eisenstadt’s September, 2015 twelve-set residency at John Zorn’s venue The Stone in New York City, Old Growth Forest soonafter released its first recording on the Portuguese label Clean Feed to critical acclaim. Harris Eisenstadt, Jeb Bishop, Tony Malaby, and Jason Roebke are each respected, instantly-recognizable musical voices in the worlds of adventurous, international jazz and improvised music. Eisenstadt pens wide-ranging themes for the group, emphasizing spontaneity and close listening alongside propulsive groove and textural exploration.

” Eisenstadt, a magnanimous leader and tasteful drummer, encourages his colleagues with supple rhythm shifts and colorful textural embellishments.”
– Peter Margasak, Downbeat

“Parts that swing, parts that groove, parts that confound and parts that astound.”
– Derek Stone, Freejazzblog

“Poised as ever, Eisenstadt generates a rustling understory in which his rhythmic shifts and embellishments subtly prompt and push his colleagues.”
– John Sharpe, NYC Jazz Record
