John Blum

John Blum was born in New York City, April 15, 1968 and has been a mainstay of the free-jazz community there for over 15 years. While in Europe in 1992, he recorded with Clarinetist Tony Scott’s Trio which included Antonio Grippi on Alto Sax. Upon returning to New York City, Blum became a member of the Improvisers Collective (1993-1995) and also initiated projects as a soloist and a group leader. By early 1998 he joined together with Antonio Grippi on Saxophone, William Parker on Bass, and Denis Charles on Drums to form The” Astrogeny Quartet”. A CD of this group was released on Eremite records in 2005
