Buffalo Jazz Octet

View Website

The last couple of years have seen the Buffalo Jazz Octet performing music of Thelonious Monk and reinterpreting hit songs of 1968. Their July performance will feature some of that repertoire, along with music from their critically-acclaimed debut album, and some new compositions. This will be the band's only appearance this summer, so be sure to catch them. The Buffalo Jazz Octet has performed since 2011, combining the power and compositional intricacy of a large ensemble with the flexibility and dynamism of a small improvising combo. The group's debut album, recorded live at Pausa Art House in May 2016, was released April 20, 2017 on Cadence Jazz Records. Critic Tom Hull hailed the band as "a remarkable large free jazz ensemble, with standout solos … and brisk and energetic group improv that never breaks down", and Jeff Simon called their debut album "the perfect disc … with which to get acquainted with some of the most forward thinking and individualistic members of Buffalo's jazz community." John Bacon, drumset Steve Baczkowski, baritone saxophone Tim Clarke, trumpet Joe Goehle, bass Michael McNeill, piano Nelson Rivera, tenor and soprano saxophones Elliot Scozzaro, alto saxophone Phil Sims, trombone
