Daniel Zelonky Daniel Zelonky

Resisting narrow stylistic or genre conventions since he first appeared as Low Res in 1994, Daniel Zelonky has emerged as a keeper of the flame of ambitious and adventurous, yet rambunctiously entertaining American music. He has woven any number of improbably wondrous hybrid styles with a mischeivous humor and unabashed over-the-top approach to musical arrangement and expression, garnering critical praise and a cult following since his 1994 debut on record. Henceforth, Zelonky’s work (and band) will go under the name “Suite Crude Revue” to reflect the increasing propensity to this sort of showmanship. The CD “Suite Crude: Space Age Gutbucket Afrodelic Jazzploitation” is currently available from The previous Low Res albums, Suite Crude Revue - “Approximate Love Boat” , and “Blue Ramen”, have been internationally acclaimed and are currently available again on iTunes. “Look Back With Knife”, a collection of unreleased, rare & live tracks, and an early works and outtakes set entitled “15 Exitos Grandes De Electro”, are also slated for release on iTunes and other services concurrent with the release of Suite Crude Revue - Suite Crude: Space Age Gutbucket Afrodelic Jazzploitation

”Crank Wanton Phenomena TOP 50 ALL GENRES 1999 - another stunning advance” review by DAVE HOWELL ~The Wire (UK)

“What could be more advanced than merging binary and orchestral sophistication with sonority and venture to result in exhilarated Web Age Neo Exotica on an incalculable level to raise the bar to spiralling heights?” - James Dean Brown (Germany)

“The spellbinding “Approximate Love Boat” signifies a high watermark....” -Paul Cooper (Pitchforkmedia)

“Once the initial shock at the cleverness on hand from Low Res is overcome, the next issue is the music, which swings, grooves, and wobbles all over the shop, with an incredible amount of apparent improvisation on hand to keep the illusion of the virtual group jamming its souls out intact.” -Grooves Magazine

””...If Joe Zawinul and Bootsy Collins were abducted by aliens, transported to Saturn, and commanded to instruct the planet's inhabitants in the fine art of jazz-funk, the results might sound much like the 23rd-century Weather Report-meets-James Brown space jazz that appears throughout the (release).”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
