New York based pianist/composer Jason Yeager returns to the Regattabar to celebrate the release of his new album, New Songs of Resistance (Outside in Music) with an all-star cast of musicians. Featuring unique chamber-jazz arrangements of Latin American folk songs as well as moving original compositions, the recording is an artful musical response to today's undeniable political and social tensions. As interpreted through the penetrating vision of this forward-thinking bandleader, the album makes stunning use of three distinctive vocalists and a host of agile instrumentalists to assert its positive message of defiance and unity. Yeager blends his own compositions-instrumentals, and others with original lyrics-with songs by the celebrated Latin American composers Chico Buarque, Violeta Parra, Victor Jara, and León Gieco. Maintaining the original Spanish and Portuguese lyrics for these works out of respect and solidarity, Yeager aligns the anger and confusion felt by the peoples of both the United States and Latin America. Suffused with rage yet also infused with courage, New Songs of Resistance attempts to speak truth through the power of music.
