John Ellis & Double-Wide Make Puppet Mischief

Brooklyn saxophonist John Ellis is gearing up for a busy 2010. On February 23, ObliqSound will release Puppet Mischief, the second album with his New Orleans-based band Double-Wide, which in addition to Ellis features Brian Coogan on organ, Matt Perrine on sousaphone and Jason Marsalis on drums, plus special guests Gregoire Maret on harmonica and Alan Ferber on trombone. The recording continues the former New Orleanian’s love affair with the Big Easy, drawing inspiration from the rich vein of music the city has given the world, while also taking cues, in Ellis’ own words, from "carnivals, state fairs, children laughing, clowns and dancing."

John Ellis & Double-Wide will perform throughout 2010, including a January residency at Snug Harbor in New Orleans. Upcoming winter dates include:

January 6 | Snug Harbor | New Orleans, LA
January 8 | Export NOLA @ Sullivan Hall | New York, NY
