Oran Etkin

Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra

Oran Etkin grew up playing jazz and began studying with George Garzone at age 14. He studied classical clarinet as an undergraduate and received a Masters in Jazz Performance at the Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Dave Liebman and Dave Krakauer among others. His unique voice on the clarinets and saxophone has contributed to numerous Jazz, African, Klezmer, Brazilian, traditional New Orleans and Classical groups in the US and abroad.

His duo with Malian guitarist/vocalist Abdoulaye Diabate, in which Oran's bass clarinet is prominently featured, offers a more intimate context to explore the interweaving lines and improvisational nature of this music. Oran also leads a quintet with Jason Marsalis, Fabian Almazan, Garth Stevenson and Curtis Fowlkes....

“...a composer of eminent individuality. [Oran Etkin] is also an extraordinary performing musician, who is a soul and mind in search of ultimate truth in aesthetics. He is a profoundly moral, socially responsible man.” — Dr. Yusef Lateef
