Brian Groder

Brian Groder is rapidly becoming known as one of the most original jazz voices of his generation. Equally fluent on trumpet and flugelhorn, Groder draws on the entire jazz tradition, as well as world music influences, to create the music Cadence magazine has hailed as "tender and well delivered, with subtle and unexpected rhythmic responses." Groder's preference for working with other composer/performers gives his brand of modern progressive jazz unique improvisatory richness and depth. For performances and recordings of the Brian Groder Ensemble, founded in the early 1990's, Groder chooses from a pool of talented musicians, including core members Francesca Tanksley, acclaimed pianist and composer (Billy Harper Quintet, Erica Lindsay, David Newman, Cecil Payne), and percussionist, composer and solo artist Newman Taylor Baker (Benny Powell, Ahmad Jamal, Dewey Redman, Henry Threadgill)

Brian Groder Trio: Reflexology

Read "Reflexology" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

È curioso che fra i tredici nomi che circumnavigano la pianta del piede che campeggia in copertina non compaia quello di Shorty Rogers. Se dovessimo infatti trovare un ipotetico progenitore di questo disco (e questo trio) il primo nome che ci verrebbe in mente sarebbe proprio quello del trombettista californiano (in realtà nativo del Massachusetts), idealmente ...

The Most Beautiful Thing

Read "The Most Beautiful Thing" reviewed by Michael Bisio

In High School during an intro to theory class my teacher announced: music is sound in time. We ...
