Dave Storrs

In 1969 Dave Storrs came up from a rehearsal in the basement to watch man walk on the moon. He participated in, and absorbed, the music of the time—Hendrix, Coltrane, The Beatles, Miles Davis, Mingus and James Brown. Between music, some school, some hitchhiking, and playing all kinds of styles in all kinds of places, an approach emerged. Seeing Sun Ra in 1979 inspired Storrs in new directions and in the '80s he began leading and composing for various ensembles—Freezer Burn, Multnomah Rhythm Ensemble and The Tone Sharks—as well as doing film and video scores. Storrs first albums, Ross Island (1984) and Jumper Cables (1987), received national air play and critical acclaim

Dave Storrs' Sound Shack: Part 1

Read "Dave Storrs' Sound Shack: Part 1" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

At one time it was a place to park a car. A detached garage in Corvallis, Oregon, surrounded by trees. Percussionist Dave Storrs transformed it into a recording studio around about 1992. And Louie Records was born. If Louie Records can be said to have enjoyed a heyday as a proper record company (whatever ...

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Troy Dostert

In a musical career that stretches back to the 1980s, tenor saxophonist Rich Halley has stoutly maintained his independent path in creating jazz that is inspired by the freedom of the '60s avant-garde but which also draws liberally from the language of bop. You can hear both Albert Ayler and Sonny Rollins in his playing. But ...

Rich Halley: Terra Incognita

Read "Terra Incognita" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Saxophonist Rich Halley usually sticks with his steady crowd. Indeed, when tallying Halley's collaborative compadres over the past couple of decades, his list of “recorded with" players comes down to a handful of names: drummer Carson Halley, trombonist Michael Vlatkovich and bassist Clyde Reed. Add cornetist Bobby Bradford on a couple of outings. The same for ...

Klobas/Storrs/Hundemer: An Hour of Now

Read "An Hour of Now" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

When a jazz fan hears “trio outing," he might think bass and drums teamed up with a lead instrument: a piano, guitar or sax. But An Hour of Now, the third outing by Mike Klobas, Dave Storrs, and Page Hundemer, continues in a drums/drums/bass format. Two drummers and a bassist? A hard sell, isn't it? Who ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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!
