Jim Knodle

As a trumpet player, I have a reputation for eclecticism and originality springing from a desire to play the trumpet in a definitely "un-trumpetish" fashion.As far as Jazz goes I'm indebted mainly to saxophonists- Ornette Coleman, Paul Desmond, Stan Getz, and Eric Dolphy.

This has not always been an advantage from a career standpoint. I'm usually considered a little too out for the Ins and a little too in for the Outs, but that's just where I want to be

Trombone x 4 (x 4)

Read "Trombone x 4 (x 4)" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Jim Knodle & Anansi: Wending

Read "Wending" reviewed by Mark Corroto


Trumpeter Jim Knodle takes a very long view of the recorded history of jazz. The music he wrote for this quintet/sextet known as Anansi never truly centers itself on one period or style of sound. Wending takes equally from Ellington, Early and Late-Miles, and a very open form music. Because the three tracks ...

Jim Knodle and Dave Storrs: Unprepared

Read "Unprepared" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


A trumpet and drum duet: two sticks, three buttons and a couple of pedals, pursed lips, studied exhalations. A fairly simple concept, on paper.

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!
