Jonathan Finlayson's music has clarity of sound and atmosphere and, at the same time, keeps you on the edge of your seat. The American trumpeter knows how to make challenging music accessible, which he has already shown in the bands of Steve Coleman, Henry Threadgill and Steve Lehman. Like their music, his own compositions are also full of surprising twists and turns. On his most recent album, Moving Still, he establishes a logical connection between jazz, the rhythms of Ghana as well ass Afro-Cuban melodies and counterpoint.

Sicilian Defense, the name of Jonathan Finlayson's band, originates from chess, another important source of inspiration for the musician who became the number 1 Rising Star Trumpeter in the 2014 Downbeat Critics Polls.

Personnel: Jonathan Finlayson trumpet and composition, Miles Okazaki guitar, Andy Milne piano, John Hébert double bass, Craig Weinrib drums

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.
