Dylan Jack

Dylan Jack is a percussionist praised for his musical sensitivity, exceptional technique, and command of a wide range of musical genres in the Boston music scene. With a distinct sound that has made its way across the country, his playing and style of composing has been described as “visceral but with so much delicacy and finesse.” As a performer, Jack divides his attention between band appearances, chamber music projects and collaborations with living composers and musicians in multicultural projects. In 2016, he launched the Dylan Jack Quartet and released their debut record Diagrams (on the Creative Nation Music label) in September of 2017

Dylan Jack Quartet: The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man

Read "The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero

Rispetto al quartetto che aveva brillantemente debuttato nel 2017 con Diagrams vi è l'avvicendamento del clarinettista Todd Brunel con il trombettista Jerry Sabatini ma la scrittura messa in campo dal batterista leader mantiene, in The Tale of the Twelve-Foot Man, la medesima sofisticata bellezza, con una interessante evoluzione delle dinamiche e degli impasti sonori.

Eric Hofbauer and Dylan Jack: Remains of Echoes

Read "Remains of Echoes" reviewed by Troy Dostert

And his stylistic approach on the guitar is similarly idiosyncratic, with a gutbucket blues ...

Dylan Jack: Diagrams

Read "Diagrams" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Il giovane batterista Dylan Jack, nativo del Massachusetts, ci presenta in questo album il suo quartetto e non si può dire che l'incontro non sia interessante: le geometrie del gruppo sono nette, chiare, il suo eloquio, e lo stesso equilibrio fra i vari strumenti, altrettanto, peraltro in un contesto che sa prendersi i suoi rischi, senza ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
