Phil Grenadier

Throughout a career that spans nearly three decades, trumpeter Phil Grenadier has emerged as one of jazz’s most imaginative and innovative players. His two albums as leader, 2000’s Sweet Transients and 2003’s Playful Intentions, have won him copious international acclaim, while his collaborations with a broad array of notable musicians demonstrate the raw talent and adventurousness that led the San Jose Mercury News to call him “a trumpeter of rare fluency and depth.” The restless creative spirit that distinguishes Phil Grenadier’s work was instilled early in life. Growing up in a musical family in San Francisco, he and his brothers Larry and Steve were all introduced to trumpet in childhood by their father Albert, who handed his lifelong love of music down to his sons. “My dad’s passion for the music had such a big impact on me, seeing how much it meant to him and how he lost himself in it,” Phil states

Larry Grenadier: The Gleaners

Read "The Gleaners" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Bassist Larry Grenadier has a most impressive resume: multiple recordings with Herbie Mann, Paul Motian, Charles Lloyd, trumpeter/brother Phil Grenadier, vocalist/wife Rebecca Martin, Chris Potter, Joshua Redman, Jamie Saft, and many others. His brand has long been enhanced by his stellar work with Pat Metheny and a twenty-plus-year association with Brad Mehldau. It's not surprising that ...

His early association with Paul Bley and a broad range of influences and interests have resulted in a harvest of creative music that shapes unexpected hybrids. Here we have a drummer-less trio for the first twelve tracks ...

John Stein: Color Tones

Read "Color Tones" reviewed by Jack Bowers

On Color Tones, his ninth album for Boston's Whaling City Sound label, Kanas City-bred guitarist John Stein has chosen a quintet whose front line includes trumpeter Phil Grenadier and flute specialist Fernando Brandao. All tones considered, it's a splendid idea, as Grenadier and Brandao blend well with Stein's lucent, well-groomed guitar, while bassist John Lockwood and ...

Adam Berenson / Scott Barnum: Penumbra

Read "Penumbra" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Not one to be tethered to genres or styles, pianist and composer Adam Berenson has been long at home as a jazz pianist, a classical composer, an electronics player or any permutation of those roles. His previous double-CD Lumen (Dream Play, 2014)--complete with two string quartets--was indeed a far-ranging collection of styles and genres that the ...

Bruno Råberg/Phil Grenadier/Allan Chase: For The Unknown

Read "For The Unknown" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Bassist Bruno Raberg returns with three-quarters of the quartet from last year's acclaimed Hot Box (Orbis Music, 2015). This outing was based on free improvisations (with extensive electronic sound design by Råberg)--it could be seen as an extension of the two collective improvisations on the previous album. No drums this time, just trumpeter Phil Grenadier, saxophonist ...

Bruno Raberg: For The Unknown

Read "For The Unknown" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Bassist Bruno Raberg's artistry sounds as if it would be a good fit for ECM Records. His music has a drifting elasticity; space is an important component; and his muse has introduced him to electronic sound design--an approach that the Swedish-born, and now Boston-based, performer has embraced. Raberg's sound is unique. Over the course ...

Jerry Bergonzi: Rigamaroll

Read "Rigamaroll" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

In Jerry Bergonzi c'è piena coerenza tra concezione esistenziale e artistica. Il sassofonista è convinto della profonda relazione che lega tutte le cose, riconosce il valore della tradizione e la sua musica si rapporta ad essa in piena consapevolezza. Entro questa cornice ha sviluppato un modo personale di suonare --armonico, ritmico e timbrico-che è ...

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
