WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT DAVE BINNEY:
Stereophile says: "Dave Binney possesses one of the most original minds in contemporary music".
The Montreal Gazette says it best: "Add Dave Binney's dynamic voice on saxophone and his great writing to the chorus of creators re-invigorating jazz."
DownBeat calls Binney "...a strikingly original composer/leader/conceptualist." **** 1/2
Acclaimed as a considerable and highly individual compositional talent, saxophonist Dave Binney is one of the most prolific young jazz musicians on the scene today. Winning praise from critics and colleagues alike, Dave was recently singled out by Jazz Times as one of a handful of "young players who have created an alternative jazz scene...all of whom are playing adventurous, original music."
Known for his performances with such prestigious groups as the big bands of Gil Evans and Maria Schneider, as well as with Jim Hall, Bobby Previte and the Cecil McBee quintet. Dave was also a co-founder of the hard-edged quintet "Lost Tribe" and the open-form collective quartet "Lan Xang." With these groups and on his own, he has recorded a dozen albums as leader or co-leader.
Dave was born in Miami, Florida and raised in Southern California. His love of jazz dates back to his childhood, when the music of Coltrane, Miles, Bobby Hutcherson, Wayne Shorter and many others was introduced to him by his parents (along with that of Milton Nascimento, Jimi Hendrix and Sly Stone, of course). He began to study the saxophone and at the age of 19 moved to New York City to play gigs and to study with Phil Woods, Dave Liebman and George Coleman.
In 1989 Dave was awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts to record his first album. "Point Game", which was released on the French label Owl Records, featuring Marvin "Smitty" Smith, Edward Simon, Adam Rogers and Lonnie Plaxico.
Since then, Dave's distinctive saxophone sound and innovative compositions have been heard from basement clubs in New York to jazz festivals in Europe. In addition to Dave's extensive work as a leader, he has been sought after as a sideman, appearing on record with Medeski, Martin & Wood and Uri Caine's Mahler Project. Dave has also appeared on stage with Aretha Franklin, at Carnegie Hall, and with Maceo Parker, to name a few. He has produced all of his own albums, in addition to two of the Lost Tribe releases. Dave started his record label, Mythology Records, in 1998.
"Welcome to Life" Group Bio's
Chris Potter is widely regarded as one of the finest jazz saxophonists of his generation. Born in Chicago, Illinois, Chris spent most of his childhood in Columbia, South Carolina. He exhibited an early interest in all kinds of music and quickly became a prodigy, mastering several instruments including guitar and piano, and finally gravitating toward the alto and tenor saxophone. Chris played his first professional jazz gig at age 13 and quickly developed a devoted local following. He attended college in New York City, first at the New School, and later at Manhattan School of Music. Chris has released a number of albums as leader and has performed and recorded with many leading musicians including Kenny Werner, Red Rodney, Marian McPartland, the Mingus Big Band, Paul Motian, Ray Brown, Jim Hall, James Moody, Dave Douglas, Joe Lovano, Mike Mainieri, Steve Swallow, Steely Dan, Dave Holland, Joanne Brackeen, and many more. His 1998 CD Vertigo was named one of the year's top ten jazz CDs by both Jazziz magazine and The New York Times. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Instrumental Solo for his work on the Joanne Brackeen recording Pink Elephant Magic. His 2004 CD Lift: Live At The Village Vanguard was named one of the year's ten best new jazz recordings by Fred Kaplan of Slate.
Adam Rogers There aren't that many guitarists who can claim to have played alongside both John Zorn and Norah Jones. But Adam Rogers, whose credits also include stints with Regina Carter, Elvis Costello, the Mingus Orchestra, and Simon Shaheen, and who was co-leader of the respected fusion band Lost Tribe, is nothing if not broad-minded. The nice thing is that in his work as a leader he lets his wide range of experiences influence his playing without feeling the need to showcase all of them individually; instead, he plays in a generally quite straight-ahead style, with a unique combination of a warm, intimate tone and a sometimes aggressive attack. Rick Anderson, All Music Guide
Craig Taborn Jazz pianist and organist, Craig Taborn, began working professionally during the 1990's in a variety of musical contexts; ranging from straight-ahead jazz to more outside music, with young jazz musicians, seasoned veterans, and even techno artists. In his hometown of Minneapolis, Taborn studied piano, composition, and music theory with area university professors before going away to college. Prior to graduating from college, Taborn performed on three recordings as a member of the James Carter Quartet. After graduating with a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan in 1995, DIW released Taborn's first date as a leader, The Craig Taborn Trio. He then moved to New York City, and by the close of the '90s, had performed on two more Carter releases, Roscoe Mitchell's 1999 ECM release: Nine to Get Ready, Detroiter Carl Craig's techno-jazz project: Innerzone Orchestra, and on Hugh Ragin's Afternoon in Harlem. At the beginning of 2000, Taborn was active performing along with drummer Tom Rainey in Tim Berne's latest project, Quiksand.
Scott Colley, an in-demand sideman, also gained recognition for his important work as a leader. The Los Angeles-born bassist studied jazz and composition at the California Institute for the Arts, graduated in 1988, and relocated to New York. His first major gig was with the late Carmen McRae. He has since performed and recorded with a who's who of contemporary jazz musicians including Jim Hall, Andrew Hill, Joe Henderson, John Scofield, Renee Rosnes, Brian Blade, Chris Potter, Ben Perowsky, Tim Ries, Rick Margitza, and more. Since the release of his debut CD, Portable Universe, in 1997, Colley has recorded for Criss Cross, SteepleChase, Arabesque, and Palmetto. David R. Adler, All Music Guide
Brian Blade A native of Shreveport, Louisiana, Brian established himself as a versatile, accomplished drummer early in his career, appearing on albums by the likes of Joshua Redman, Kenny Garrett and Bob Dylan before he released his first album, Brian Blade Fellowship at the age of 27 in 1998. Perceptual followed two years later. Also recorded w/Joni Mitchell, Wayne Shorter, et al Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
