Jeff Denson Ensemble at the Hillside Club


Jeff Denson returns to the Hillside Club to premiere new music for his largest ensemble yet, the Jeff Denson Ensemble. The group features six marvelous musicians who each bring their own unique voice to the project, giving Jeff an augmented canvas on which to present his compositions. This project combines two different iterations of Jeff’s well-traveled quartet, by combining the world’s preeminent jazz bassoonist, Paul Hanson (who toured nationally with Jeff and recorded on his 5th album, “Concentric Circles”) and Lyle Link on tenor and soprano saxophones (who just finished another national tour with Jeff and appears on Jeff’s upcoming album, “Jeff Denson Live.”) The rhythm section of this ensemble is rounded out by the members of Jeff quartet, piano virtuoso, Dahveed Behroozi and the fiery multi-instrumentalist, Dillon Vado on drums. Guitarist, Ryan Pate is the newest addition to the group, and he brings a wide array of textures to the ensemble, both acoustic and electric, and bridges the gap between rhythm section and melodic voice. The compositions presented this evening will feature newly arranged pieces from Jeff’s previous twelve albums and brand new works that will be released later this year. The music for this evening will traverse a wide musical terrain from swinging, high-energy jazz to chamber music to electronic music. “Artists are always dreaming up what we’re doing,” Jeff says. “My goal has always been very clearly to create my own musical world.”
