Dan Pratt

Saxophonist-composer Dan Pratt has been favored as “a powerful player” by Jazz Times, with the PA Daily News adding, “Pratt is an impressive tenor sax man. Seriously, he's got energy to blow buildings down with his horn and a style that's so elastic he can wrap it all back up together again when he's done.” As a composer, Dan has been called “gifted,” (Birmingham Times) and “a true home run power hitter” (All Music Guide) whose “writing for a band is its principal asset.” (Master of a Small House) Following two critically-acclaimed organ group outings, Dan heads in a new direction on Hymn for the Happy Man, his fourth recording as a leader and debut for his own Same Island Music imprint

Christian McBride Big Band: Bringin' It

Read "Bringin' It" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


Where and how does Christian McBride find the time to do what he does? His plate is full about nine times over, what with his work as bassist, composer, bandleader, educator, jazz advocate, public speaker, radio personality, DJ, and Artistic Director for the Newport Jazz Festival.

David Smith Quintet: Impetus

Read "Impetus" reviewed by Luigi Sforza


La registrazione analogica di Impetus -terzo disco del David Smith Quintet -valorizza pienamente gli aspetti performativi del gruppo conferendo al sound un respiro “naturale," in cui la musicalità si abbina alla precisione esecutiva e l'ariosità delle melodie dà spunto ad ispirati parti solistiche. La band guidata dal trombettista canadese David Smith, naturalizzato newyorkese, sa inanellare ...

Ralph Bowen, Dan Pratt, Brandon Wright: Posi-Tone strikes gold again

Read "Ralph Bowen, Dan Pratt, Brandon Wright: Posi-Tone strikes gold again" reviewed by J Hunter


Traditional jazz does not have to be boring. It does not have to be staid, or re-fried or adhere to a formula concocted in a New Orleans barroom over nine decades ago. A lot of the large labels don't get that. Fortunately, the creative triumvirate at Posi-Tone Records not only understands this concept, but they practice ...

The State of Organ Jazz 2010 (Pt. 1): Wayne Escoffery, Dan Pratt and Matthew Kaminski

Read "The State of Organ Jazz 2010 (Pt. 1): Wayne Escoffery, Dan Pratt and Matthew Kaminski" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


Organ-based jazz inhabits a unique place as a sub-genre. The combination of the sacred churchy organ with the decadence of blues and bebop made for a heady brew after the introduction of the format by Wild Bill Davis and Bill Doggett in the 1950s. Qualitatively, the names that loom largest in organ jazz are Jimmy Smith, ...

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!
