Brent Blount has been a foundational piece of the Oklahoma Jazz and Blues community for the last 19 years. Doug Hill of Pop Magazine describe the experience of his performance as “ Falling into a slow grove, he found intonations that escalated from the icy depths into bright crisp sunshine. Staccato stutter-steps danced off into brass oblivion. Blount played entire long solos with eyes closed, opening at the conclusion as if waking from a sweet dream” (2000). He began as a saxophone player at Bianca’s in 1986 in Oklahoma City at the tender age of 16 and fell in love with the Blues. At the age of 12 Jazz would invade his world with confusion at the induction of John Coltrane into his ear, love it or hate it, he was obsessed. By his nineteenth year on earth Ernie Watts would provide clarification and cement the relationship with jazz that would last a lifetime. Brent is classically trained in the art of Saxophone and Clarinet performance and rounds off this talent with outstanding clarity in blues guitar and the Native American flute. He is truly a musician’s musician. Ameritone records referred to him as an artist “who melds tradition and originality into his musical range from Bach to late John Coltrane” (2004).

Brent’s eclectic talent is well represented in his vast experience. Brent was awarded outstanding soloist at the Wichita Jazz Festival in 1994 and 2001. He has performed with a variety of renowned artist’s from the Scott Keeton Band and Danny White to Smilin Vic and the Temptations. He regularly performs at local venues such as Maker’s Cigar Lounge and Bourbon Street Café. He has also been a staple at local events such as Chocolate Decadence, the Paseo Arts Festival, Oklahoma City Festival of Arts and Stillwater Blues Festival. A varied recording history is available on “Get Some Sauce on Your Monkey” Big Daddy and The Sauce Monkeys, saxophone and guitar, 1998; “A Suncrush for Sweethearts” by Eric Sarmienta, tenor sax, 1997; and “After All These Years” Brent Blount, soloist and producer, 1996
