International Orange is the brainchild of New York City veteran musicians and longtime friends Todd Isler and David Phelps. Gaku Takanashi provides melodic bass, and Dan Steinâ€™s keys round out IOâ€™s evolving personality.
The members of IO have a wide, genre-crossing resume, from Phish bassist Mike Gordon and John Medeski to Abdoulaye Debate and Francis Mbappe, Ivan Neville, Melvin Sparks, Jack McDuff, Betty Buckley, and on and onâ€¦
From the slide guitar of the American south to the rhythmic sensibilities of India, Africa, and Brazil, their debut album marries jazz attitude with innovative funky originals.
IO has played some of NYCâ€™s finest music venues like the Blue Note, Iridium, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and many music festivals around the world.
