The Jonathan Lorentz Trio perform this week's jazz concert at
Brandon Music, on Feb. 7.
As part of their jazz series, Brandon Music, located at 62
Country Club Road in Brandon will present the saxophonist Jonathan
Lorentz on Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m.
Jonathan Lorentz plays with a sound that is warm in tone and
rich in melodic complexity. He is a daring and creative improviser
who blends modern jazz with blues, rock, and the avant-garde. Jon's
recent album Borderlands (his first for the UK's Métier Jazz label)
was released to critical acclaim in 2010, and is receiving airplay
on radio stations throughout the world. In March of 2011 Fanfare
Magazine's Lynn René Bayley remarked that "Jonathan Lorentz has
really got it: a great style, an explorative mind, and a concept
for this album that goes beyond the usual fare you hear from jazz
Lorentz is celebrated for having a "real big sound on tenor" (by
jazz legend Dave Liebman), and has performed with Dave Calarco,
John Menegon, Judi Silvano, Bob Gullotti, Hezekiah Walker, Mike
Dillon, Delfeayo Marsalis, Harry Allen, Bruce Gertz, John Lockwood
and Yoron Israel. Jon holds a PhD in Jazz Studies from New York
University and works as an arranger, transcriber and engraver for
Jazzlines Publications. Jon is the founder and director of "NH Jazz
Presents" and was recently elected to the board of directors of the
Seacoast Jazz Society.
Jonathan will perform in Brandon with bassist John Hunter and
drummer Tim Gilmore.
