Musician

Dan Blake

Most artists who record an album as enthusiastically reviewed as The Aquarian Suite (2012), saxophonist Dan Blake’s scintillating up-to-the-minute take on postbop – “one of the most ridiculously satisfying discs we’ve heard in some time,” crowed the Boston Phoenix – would be eager to follow it up with something in the same vein. And that’s just what he’s done with The Digging (Sunnyside Records, 2016), a trio foray that features Eric Harland on drums. But for the Brooklyn artist, whose ridiculously wide-ranging career has included significant work with great artists as different as avant guru Anthony Braxton and Grammy-winning jazz-pop star Esperanza Spalding, there are compelling reasons to also go in other directions. The Boston Globe has said Blake “regards tradition as a welcoming playground best approached with a sense of wonder and adventure.” A frequent collaborator in this playground is the protean Argentine pianist Leo Genovese, whose recording Seeds (Palmetto) features Blake, who the New York Times called a “virtuoso.” One of those reasons is his burgeoning relationship with the Mivos Quartet, a leading new music chamber group for which he was commissioned to composer a new work by the Jerome Fund for New Music, with support from New Music USA’s Composer Assistance Program

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!
