Brent Blount has been a foundational piece of the Oklahoma Jazz and Blues community for the last 22 years, and now he resides in Cheektowaga, New York. Brent frequents local jam sessions, and has begun performing and recording once again. Doug Hill of Pop Magazine describes the experience of his performance as Falling into a slow grove, he found intonations that escalated from the icy depths into bright crisp sunshine. Staccato stutter-steps danced off into brass oblivion. Blount played entire long solos with eyes closed, opening at the conclusion as if waking from a sweet dream (2000)....
Awards:Outstanding soloist at the Wichita Jazz Festival in 1994 and 2001.
Ameritone records referred to him as an artist who melds tradition and originality into his musical range from Bach to late John Coltrane (2004).
