JC Sanford

http://www.jcsanford.com/

Trombonist/composer/conductor JC Sanford is a musician of rare breadth, deeply rooted in the traditions of Jazz and Classical music, yet constantly pushing at their boundaries. Equally at home in many roles, Sanford works regularly as a composer, performer, arranger and conductor.

As a trombonist, Mr. Sanford has performed with many of the jazz world's leading figures, such as Matt Wilson, Danilo Perez, and John McNeil. His improvisational trio Triocracy - with saxophonists Andy Laster and Chris Bacas - serves as an outlet for his unique compositions and improvisational concepts. As co-leader of My Band Foot Foot (along with John McNeil and Andrew Green), Sanford has helped breed a “mad science project” exploring and recreating music of The Shaggs. An interest in film has led to several projects, including recordings with Danilo Perez for the soundtrack of Hugo Pool - directed by Robert Downey.

”Co-led by composers David Schumacher and JC Sanford, this dynamic 17- piece jazz orchestra delivers heady, modernist fare ranging from the dissonant, surging 'Breaking Point' to the majestic sweep of 'Edge of the Window,' the sly, Thad Jones-inspired 'Chuck 'n' Jinx,' the formidable 'Rhythm of the Mind' and the gentle, rubato ballad 'Ives, Eyes.'

—Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes on Sound Assembly's “Edge of the Mind”
