Fiona's Comments

The unconventional jazz band -- the one described with superfluous wordage, that plays irregular instruments irregularly. Classic.

About the Album

Trombonist and composer JC Sanford's new album "Views from the Inside" (May 20th, Whirlwind Recordings) participates in a new phenomenon on the current jazz scene: the resurgence of the orchestra, or big band. Sanford employs the resources of fifteen outstanding players (including such celebrated contemporary stylists as trumpeter Taylor Haskins, vibraphonist Tom Beckham and percussionist Satoshi Takeishi) in an ensemble that draws on such unconventional jazz band instrumentation as French horn, accordion, tuba, English horn, oboe, bassoon, violin and cello. JC Sanford: composer, conductor, trombone;

Satoshi Takeishi: percussion;

Jacob Garchik: accordion;

Tom Beckham: vibraphone;

Meg Okura: violin, electronics;

Will Martina: cello, electronics;

Aidan O'Donnell: acoustic bass;

Dan Willis: oboe, piccolo, flute, soprano sax;

Ben Kono: English horn, bass clarient, clarinet, flute, alto sax;

Chris Bacas: clarinet, soprano sax, tenor sax;

Kenny Berger: contra-alto clarinet, bassoon, alto flute;

Taylor Haskins: trumpet, fugelhorn, harmonizer;

Matt Holman: trumpet, fugelhorn;

Mark Patterson: tenor trombone;

Jeff Nelson: tuba, bass trombone;

Chris Komer: F horn.

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.
