Patrick Brennan

New York City based composer, saxophonist & bandleader patrick brennan is a participant in the Blues Continuum who’s pursued a contrarian and independent musical path for over 40 years. He formed his long term, rhythm- section-centric ensemble sonic openings under pressure, in 1979, a project that interfaces flexibly jointed compositional matrices with polyrhythm & collective improvisation. He’s initiated the Sudani Project, a collaboration with Gnawi Ma’alem Najib Soudani of Essaouira, Morocco and U.S. percussionist and singer Nirankar Khalsa. He further explores his multilinear orchestral conceptions via the solo saxophone project rōnin phasing and sustains a modularly organized large ensemble, transparency kestra, now in its 5th year of monthly NYC performances.

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.
