Jeff Denson "Outside My Window" - San Jose Jazz Summer Fest 2018 - Sillicon Valley Stage
Saturday, August 11th, 2018
3:00 PM
San Jose Jazz Summer Fest 2018 - Sillicon Valley Stage
San Jose, CA
Please join me for my San Jose debut of the music from my upcoming album "Outside My Window" on Ridgeway Records! (Album comes out on May 4, 2018!) This album is very special to me because this is my first release where I'm singing on every track. I started as a singer and then put that to the side when I fell in love with the double bass, and for the last eight years I have been singing more and more, so this album really highlights that side of my music. I have composed some brand new music along with arranging some tunes by an electric array of vocalists that I have found very inspiriting such as Chris Cornell, Abbey Lincoln, Jeff Buckley and Peter Gabriel. We'll be mixing in some of my high energy and intricate original music from my older albums as well. I hope to see you there!
I'll be joined by my good friends and amazing musicians, Paul Hanson, Dahveed Behroozi and Alan Hall! Paul is the world's premier improvising jazz bassoonist - he plays with an unparalleled power and intensity on an instrument rarely heard in a jazz context and what he also brings with his use of electronics will blow your minds! Dahveed is an extraordinary pianist/keyboardist that a high level of drama and virtuosity to his performances. He was first recommend to me when we were both living in Brooklyn, NY, but we didn't connect until we crossed paths in California - we've been making up for lost time ever since! Alan Hall is a master drummer originally hailing from San Jose, but now living in the North Bay. Alan's well-deserved reputation has earned him wide acclaim as one of the most sought after drummers on the West Coast and has led him to play with some of jazz's top contemporary peformers such as Art Lande, Paul McCandless, Ed Simon, John Clayton, Jeffrey Keesser and many more. Alan and I have worked together in many contexts over the years, including touring Europe with the great jazz legend, Lee Konitz. As a result, we make one helluva rhythm section! ;-)
