If you want some real feels then there's always the Outpost Performance Space. That's where the jazz is in Burque. If you want to know how that feels, then visit the storied venue on Thursday, May 10 for a performance by rising-star trumpeter John Raymond and his band. Raymond, named one of the top players by Downbeat Magazine brings his horn and everything that toots out of it for a performance featuring music that is, according to the legendary jazz magazine, “electrifyingly new and strangely familiar at the same time. With his mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned feeling, Raymond is steering jazz in the right direction." John Raymond & Real Feels are touring on the strength of a new release called Joy Ride and hope listeners join them for a jazzy escapade that is both joyful and a ride away from the normative. Tickets to this performance cost between $20 and $25 and the jazz trance begins at 7:30pm, open to all ages. (August March)

New York-based trumpeter John Raymond performers selections from his new album and other favorites.
Recently voted a Rising Star Trumpeter in the Downbeat Magazine Critic’s Poll, New York-based trumpeter John Raymond has been making a name for himself as one of the jazz world’s promising, up-and-coming artists. Originally from Minneapolis, John has performed with some of the most respected names in jazz, including Billy Hart, Orrin Evans, Kurt Rosenwinkel, and Linda Oh . His 2016 album, Real Feels, was released to widespread acclaim, including a 4-1/2 Star Downbeat review and was included on the Best Jazz Albums of 2016 by Stereogum. Raymond’s trio, Real Feels, is a unique band that includes rising stars Gilad Hekselman, guitar; and Colin Stranahan, drums. With a unique flugelhorn/guitar/drums instrumentation, the group combines indie-rock and folk-influenced original music with fresh takes on familiar songs by artists including Bob Dylan, Thom Yorke, Bon Iver, Lennon/McCartney and more. While evoking a nostalgia for the past, the music of “Real Feels” also points a way towards the future with an improvisational, free-wheeling, keep-you-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of approach which makes the songs feel entirely relevant and contemporary and has made this group one of the hottest new groups in jazz today. “Electrifyingly new and strangely familiar at the same time...with his mix of modern sounds and old-fashioned feeling, Raymond is steering jazz in the right direction.” (Downbeat Magazine) “This is jazz, yes, but jazz with an open mind.” (Something Else). The tour, which brings him to Outpost, celebrates the release of the newest Real Feels album Joy Ride, on Sunnyside Records.
