Restless, agile, but with a steady course: this is how one could describe the malamute, the Alaskan sledge dog, and this description is also appropriate for the eponymous New York band lead by drummer Jim Black and featuring Oskar Gudjonsson on tenor saxophone, Elias Stemeseder on keyboards and Chris Tordini on bass. The four musicians cannot be pinned down to one genre. Together they create a unique style with seemingly incompatible elements: warm-blooded tenor sax, jumpy keyboards and propulsive bass and drum grooves.

Drummer Jim Black keeps the boundaries of jazz and rock shifting, in all the bands he played, from Human Feel (featuring Kurt Rosenwinkel), Tim Berne's Bloodcount to Tiny Bell Trio with Dave Douglas.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
