Jon Irabagon Quartet w/ special guest Tim Hagans - Dr. Quixotic's Traveling Exotics (IRABBAGAST RECORDS May 15, 2018)

Recorded while on tour in South America, Dr. Quixotic's Traveling Exotics finds Jon Irabagon's long-standing quartet (the same rhythm section from his 2015 album Behind the Sky) teamed up with trumpet wizard Tim Hagans. Together they bop, weave, dance and fly through six of Irabagon's labyrinthian compositions, with each one getting the funhouse mirror treatment and the freak show send off. This recording captures a band in full flight mode in the middle of a lengthy and successful tour.
