Daniel Levin + Pedro Ström

Daniel Levin – cello / Pedro Ström - bass





Daniel Levin is “one of the outstanding cellists working in the vanguard arena” (All About Jazz), "ridiculously fluent, virtually overflowing with ideas” (New York City Jazz Record) and “very much the man to watch.” (Penguin Guide to Jazz). No matter what setting he plays in, cellist Daniel Levin occupies a musical space bordered by many kinds of music, but fully defined by none of them.



Elements of European classical music, American jazz, microtonal and new music, and European free improvisation all figure prominently in his unique sound. As critic John Sharpe observes in The New York City Jazz Record, “he invokes all manner of musics with prodigious skill: jazz, classical, improv, noise, vocal chorus. His technique is unquestioned and he revels in the physicality of the instrument. Those with an adventurous streak or interest in the outer reaches of the cello universe will find much to savor.”



Born in Burlington, Vermont, he began playing the cello at the age of six. In 2001, he graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies from the New England Conservatory of Music, and arrived on New York City jazz scene shortly therafter. Since then, Daniel has developed his own unique voice as a cellist, improviser, and composer. Ed Hazell noted upon release of Levin’s first record as a leader, “Cellist Daniel Levin is a major new voice on his instrument and in improvised music.” He has performed and/or recorded with Billy Bang, Borah Bergman, Tim Berne, Anthony Braxton, Gerald Cleaver, Andrew Cyrille, Mark Dresser, Ingebrigt Haker Flaten, Tony Malaby, Mat Maneri, Joe Morris, William Parker, Ivo Perelman, Warren Smith, Ken Vandermark, and many others. Daniel is the recipient of a 2010 Jerome Foundation award.



"The ridiculously talented" (Number 1 Magazine) Portuguese-Scandinavian bassist Pedro Ström is a consistently innovative voice in the global Free Music community.  He has contributed his big warm sound and unique harmonic mind to a vast array of performances, both live and on record. In the past few years, he has worked with Carlos Garnett, Sonny Fortune, Sonny Simmons, Ivo Perelman, Benny Golson, Benny Bailey, Mulato Aztatke, Jonas Kullhammar, Kresten Osgood, Lotte Anker, Fredrik Ljungqvist, Magnus Broo, and Martin Küchen, to name a few.  He has received several awards and distinctions, including two Grammy Award nominations.



Pedro's playing has been described as "an elemental force and gorgeously harmonious" (Lutfisk Sweden) and "Epic" (KanelgiflerJazz – Norway). And only a few months ago, Downbeat magazine wrote that "his playing is on a new level". 



Further words about Pedro:  "...one of our favorite bassists..." (Action Jazz)

"Profound, inspired brilliance” (New Music Guide)

Rich Halley 4 (Portland, Oregon)

Rich Halley – tenor sax / Michael Vlatkovich – trombone / Clyde Reed – bass / Carson Halley - drums




Rich Halley – tenor saxophonist and composer
Rich Halley is a saxophonist and composer based in Portland, Oregon who has released sixteen recordings as a leader.  He leads the Rich Halley 4 which has released four critically acclaimed recordings. Rich has performed with Tony Malaby, Julius Hemphill, Vinny Golia, Bobby Bradford, Nels Cline, Michael Bisio, Obo Addy, Andrew Hill and Oliver Lake.






"Rich Halley has a big full-throated sound that may recall prime Sonny Rollins.
-Kevin Whitehead, Fresh Air, National Public Radio

"Tenor saxophonist Rich Halley has been making bold, uncompromising music outside the jazz mainstream for over 30 years.”
-Troy Collins, Point of Departure
 
"Oregon-based saxophonist Rich Halley has been turning out smart, brawny music for a couple of decades…This is a group that deserves to be more than a regional treasure...4 Stars."
-James Hale, DownBeat

"A free rider from the Left Coast, tenor saxophonist-composer Rich Halley is a powerful player… In New York, he’d be a star on the avant-garde scene."
-Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times

"As we enter the second decade of the 21st Century, Rich Halley has flourished into one of the world's very finest jazz tenor saxophonists.”
-Dave Wayne, jazzreview.com

"No saxophonist out there is playing with more fire, muscle, sheer guts or wild abandon than Halley. But as out there as he can get, there's always a boppish discipline, a thread of containment.”
-Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz

"Heartland American jazz of the very highest order.”
-Brian Morton, Point of Departure


Accomplishments and recent activities
 

Sixteen critically acclaimed recordings as leader

Prolific composer with over 100 recorded original compositions

Led by Allan Chase, Baritone Summit performs arrangements of jazz standards for 3 baritone saxophones and rhythm section. All three bari players approach playing and improvising in distinct ways and bring something unique to the performance. Here's a link where you can check out some recordings:


+

The Olson Pingrey Quartet

Kathy Olson - baritone sax

Randy Pingrey - trombone

Mark Zaleski - bass

Austin McMahon - drums

The Olson Pingrey Quartet had our album "Low Contrast" reviewed in Cadence Magazine where Jerome Wilson called it "a fresh and fun slant on some classic materials" and that the tunes "have a clipped interplay and strutting beauty that brings to mind Mulligan dueling with Bob Brookmeyer, a nice bled of low tones over a high-stepping rhythm section."

This chord-less quartet fronted by baritone saxophone and trombone plays a mix of originals and inventive arrangements of standards.


You can visit our website to find out more about the group and to listen to some recordings from our album:

Jim Behrle & Douglas Rothchild

Aw yeah - This is how to get your Valentine's on. Looking for just the right date? Look no further.

 The poet DglsN.Rthsjchld does not really exist as such. Having considered the various possibilities, it seems, in all likelyhood, that 'his writings' are produced by some sort of synthetic syntactic system, created by some form of semi-autonomous 'emotive' generator.




Jim Behrle lives in Jersey City, NJ. His latest chapbooks are SUCCUBUS BLUES (Editions Louis Wain) and IT SERVES ME RIGHT TO SUFFER (Hotel Poetry). He serves as co-host of "Sportsy Talk" on WFMU Mondays at 6 PM. He works at a bookstore and his poems have appeared in the New York Times, Shampoo and inside of notebooks with puppies on the cover.
