Eugene Ball 4tet debut release out now!

After years of working on others’ projects, Eugene has finally assembled his own ensemble, the Eugene Ball 4tet, and they are about to independently release their debut album, Hi(gh) Curious. The album is now available as a CD and a digital download from Bandcamp.

Joining Eugene in the 4tet are James Macaulay on trombone, James McLean on drums and Mick Meagher on electric bass. The album was recorded by saxophonist, Phil Noy. Hi(gh) Curious features Eugene’s compositions as well as his unique arrangements of lesser-known standards.
