Brooklyn-based clarinetist, saxophonist, and composer, Ken Thomson has put together a new band for his latest project, Sextet, out on New Focus Recordings' Panoramic imprint on September 7. Thomson is a staple within NYCs contemporary music and jazz communities, known for his playing with the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and composing and playing with the bands Slow/Fast and Gutbucket. He has written music for the JACK Quartet, Ashley Bathgate, American Composers Orchestra, and others.
Thomson is known for a unique voice that blends a variety of styles, with the Chicago Reader exclaiming that few musicians travel as assuredly and meaningfully between jazz and new music as saxophonist Ken Thomson.
For Sextet, the Bang on a Can All-Star reedist expands his ensemble to include alto and tenor saxophones (Thomson and Anna Webber), trumpet (Russ Johnson) and trombone (Alan Ferber), and dropped the chordal instrument, leaving bass (Adam Armstrong) and drums (Daniel Dor). With four horns, the palette is bigger, broader, and more dynamic.
