Jaimie Branch's debut album Fly or Die immediately put her on the map as a gifted trumpeter and composer who brings together groove, melody and experiment. Fly or Die appeared in the top 10 best albums of the year in the Downbeat Critics Poll.

For her eponymous band Fly or Die, Jaimie Branch selected well-known jazz musicians from Chicago including drummer Chad Taylor of Chicago Underground Duo. In Chicago, Jaimie Branch played in many different settings, from improv to indie rock. She was classically trained, but became enamored with the extended techniques of trumpeters such as Axel Dorner. She incorporates all of these influences in her current band.

Personnel: Jaimie Branch trumpet, Lester St Louis cello, Jason Ajemian bass, Chad Taylor drums

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
