Bonnie Kane

”I'm interested in what a musician can bring to the moment of creation...”

Dedicated improvisor and electro acoustic pioneer, Bonnie Kane's music is formed from equal exposure to the avant-garde, hard core and the psychedelic.

Integrating saxophone, flute, feedback and electronics, her solo and group work traverse the genres of noise, free jazz and improvisation, psych rock, jam band, and bio-composition. She brought her “Fresh Sound Guarantee” to her first show at the Rochester Planetarium, performances at a Bosnian refugee camp, outdoor festivals, art spaces, rock, jazz, and punk clubs. She has toured nationally and worldwide, performing extensively throughout her Eastern USA base.

A bandleader since the 1990s, with over 30 releases, those she has performed and recorded with include: John Spencer, Tatsuya Nakatani, Chris Forsyth, Kevin Shea, Shayna Dulberger, Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut, Blaise Siwula, Ernesto Diaz-Infante, Chris Welcome, and Federico Ughi.  New collaborations are continually evolving.

Happiest in 3 bands simultaneously, her current groups are the psych band, “Big Plastic Finger” with Scott Prato, Mark McClemens; the noise/drone ensemble,”I'm With Joo Won” with Joo Won Park and Flandrew Fleisenberg; and the power trio, “Fire Maidens From Outer Space” with Reuben Radding and David Miller.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
