Joe Baer Magnant Group Joe Baer Magnant Group

The Joe Baer Magnant Group shifts between tradition and modernity while freely improvising over original compositions and arrangements of songs by Tom Waits, Mulatu Astatke, Erik Satie, and Gary Burton. Magnant’s genre-blurring guitar style developed while performing thousands of shows in an array of genres, studying at Berklee College of Music, and becoming one of the youngest faculty members of the Cape Cod Conservatory of Music. The quartet features Tony Capriccio on electric piano (The Hexaphonics), Chris Lujan on upright bass (The M-Tet, Terrance Brewer), and Michael Reed on drums (Planet Booty, Secret Sidewalk). Their first album Traces was released in 2014 and their second, Liminal Spaces, is planned for release in the summer of 2015 on Old Tom Foolery Records. Visit for more info.

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.
