JC Sanford

http://www.jcsanford.com/ Trombonist/composer/conductor JC Sanford is a musician of rare breadth, deeply rooted in the traditions of Jazz and Classical music, yet constantly pushing at their boundaries. Equally at home in many roles, Sanford works regularly as a composer, performer, arranger and conductor. As a trombonist, Mr. Sanford has performed with many of the jazz world's leading figures, such as Matt Wilson, Danilo Perez, and John McNeil. His improvisational trio Triocracy - with saxophonists Andy Laster and Chris Bacas - serves as an outlet for his unique compositions and improvisational concepts

JC Sanford Quartet: Keratoconus

Read "Keratoconus" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il trombonista JC Sanford, protégé del grande Bob Brookmeyer, dirige in questo lavoro un quartetto di solida conformazione che ha la sua base nel Minnesota. L'incisione risale al febbraio 2019 e include tutti temi dello stesso Sanford, tranne ovviamente l'iperstandard “All the Things You Are." Si parte col breve, funkeggiante brano che intitola ...

JC Sanford Quartet: Keratoconus

Read "Keratoconus" reviewed by Friedrich Kunzmann

A bubbling ostinato on trombone to the right. Treble register double-bass lines join in the middle. Muffled electric-guitar riffs imitate the same to the left--the guitar's dry tone seemingly hailing straight from a rustic 1960s Telecaster. Drums start banging ahead relentlessly; not in a constant motion though--they stop and go and stop and go, unsure whether ...

Adam Meckler: Magnificent Madness

Read "Magnificent Madness" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Non so se Minneapolis è considerata “provincia" nel vasto territorio statunitense (nel campo del jazz certamente si, rispetto ai poli storici di New York, Los Angeles e Chicago) ma spesso dalla provincia giungono alte prove di creatività. Il trombettista, educatore e bandleader Adam Meckler deve ancora trovare ampi riconoscimenti ma il suo debutto orchestrale del 2014 ...

JC Sanford's Triocracy: Pyramid Scheme

Read "Pyramid Scheme" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Trombonist / composer JC Sanford leads an unconventional chamber trio with Andy Laster and Chris Bacas on saxophones and clarinets. As the group name implies, it is a remarkably flexible and democratic small ensemble. Sanford is the main composer, but there are also collective improvisations, guided improvisations, and a few surprising covers. “Rip Tide" ...

Frank Carlberg Large Ensemble: Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares

Read "Monk Dreams, Hallucinations And Nightmares" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Il “pianeta" Monk è stato talmente esplorato negli ultimi decenni che è difficile attendersi qualcosa d'originalmente significativo. Con quest'album orchestrale --la dimensione meno usata nelle revisitazioni del songbook monkiano -il pianista e compositore Frank Carlberg c'è però riuscito: anche se ogni brano s'ispira a un tema di Thelonious, l'elaborazione è personale e non deve stupire se ...

JC Sanford Orchestra: Views from the Inside

Read "Views from the Inside" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Nell'attuale rinascimento del jazz orchestrale JC Sanford non è affatto un esordiente anche se pubblica solo ora il primo disco a suo nome. È membro fondatore con Darcy James Argue del Composers' Federation Pulse, ha operato nel BMI Jazz Composers' Workshop guidato da Jim McNeely e Mike Abene, da anni agisce regolarmente come compositore ...
