Jae Sinnett

Primary Instrument: Drums

Jae Sinnett has 8 recordings out as a leader, the first of which was released in 1986--called “Obsession.” Featured on this project were: The former director of the Count Basie Orchestra--Frank Foster playing saxophone, John Hicks, piano, Wallace Roney, trumpet, Steve Wilson, saxophone and Clarence Seay, bass. The swinging sextet release “Blue Jae” followed in 1992. “House and Sinnett” came out in 1994 and featured Cyrus Chestnut and Steve Wilson. “Listen” was released in 1997 with Jesse Davis, alto, John D'earth, trumpet, Billy Pierce, tenor saxophone, Allen Farnham and Cyrus Chestnut, piano and went to the number one slot on the Gavin Jazz radio charts in July of that year. His fifth recording “The Better Half” was released in April 1999 featuring the sensational saxophonist Chris Potter and his current working trio with pianist Allen Farnham and bassist Terry Burrell. “The Better Half” made it to number 10 on the charts in June of 1999 and this recording represented a different musical direction with Jae's writing. Following in the footsteps of “The Better Half,” �Off the Myopic Avenue� was released in 2000 - which also features the trio and special guest saxophonist Elias Haslanger. �Confluence” the seventh was released in 2003. This is the first release that solely features the trio. �The Sinnett Hearings� is the latest and features some of Jae�s best writing, arranging and drumming. This is the first of his eight releases where he wrote and arranged every composition. The CD is sonically beautiful and is a wonderful vehicle to showcase high-level musicianship. It is a powerful and soulful mix of thought provoking grooves and improvisation....
