Jeff Albert

Primary Instrument: Trombone

Born: October 9, 1970    

Jeff Albert is a trombonist and improviser based in New Orleans, LA. Free jazz is the most accurate generic descriptor for his music, which places high value on melody and interaction, but is informed by his multi-faceted background and experiences. “Unreal, gorgeous, crazy, rudely alive,” is how author David Biedney has described Jeff’s music, and according to Cadence Magazine,”he maintains an ever flowing sense of continuity and enthusiasm.”

The Jeff Albert Quartet is Albert’s primary artistic outlet. The group released One on the Lakefront Digital label in 2005, and will be making a new recording in the summer of 2008. The new quartet material is focused on guiding and focusing improvisation. While the group does play some song form compositions and occasionally uses the standard jazz theme/improvisation/theme structure, the newest material Albert has composed provides settings to stimulate the improvisations, with the goal of maintaining musical interest and diversity over the course of a performance, while still allowing as much creative space as possible for each individual musician. The Jeff Albert Quartet consists of Albert on trombone, Ray Moore on saxophone, Dave Cappello on drums, and Tommy Sciple on bass, although other participants have included Nobu Ozaki, Quin Kirchner, Jimbo Walsh, Dave Rempis, Greg Ward, Robin Boudreaux, Jason Roebke and Frank Rosaly....
