Joshua Jefferson

Josh Jefferson is a collage artist and a alto saxophone and bass clarinet player whose music can not be easily confined to such limiting descriptions as "noise", "free jazz", "improv", etc. He plays locally in the groups Skinny Vinny, Duck That, Hospice for the 300 and Grizzlier and has developed a highly idiosyncratic approach to his instruments and a sharp edged approach to what we once knew as music. The duo of Skinny Vinny has been making music and playing together since 2002. Inspired by speed chess, fast art, and all things Duchamp, Josh Jefferson and Andrew Eisenberg work together to define, refine and otherwise extend their understanding of music

Ryan McGuire: Metal Reasoning

Read "Ryan McGuire: Metal Reasoning" reviewed by Gordon Marshall

Bassist Ryan McGuire, a master of classical composition, uses this skill as a strategist in the metal underground. His band Ehnahre is quite unlike any other in that field, baffling committed rock fans with its advanced theory and unstructured time signatures. In another way, he throws off jazz and improvisation aficionados with his part ...

Their music is in equal measure exhilarating and exhausting. It was the combination, in part, that burned Norton out about ten years ago, as well as ...

Skinny Vinny: The Answer to Everything

Read "Skinny Vinny: The Answer to Everything" reviewed by Gordon Marshall

Andrew Eisenberg is the percussionist for the Boston, Mass. duo Skinny Vinny--and a conceptual mastermind. Equally adept with hammer, saw, trash can, pots and pans, or what have you, he can make you think, or muse, by knocking together a table, or banging a stick against a window. An early piece, a big white room with ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
