One for All

Jim Rotondi - trumpet, Eric Alexander - tenor sax, Steve Davis - trombone, David Hazeltine - piano, John Webber - bass (or Peter Washington - bass), Joe Farnsworth - drums.

The cooperative sextet One For All was formed in 1996 in NYC at the legendary jazz club Augie's (now Smoke). Collectively, the band has forged a powerful, yet sleek sound which has become synonymous with hard-swinging, straight-ahead modern jazz. Individually, each member of One For All has earned a sterling reputation not only as a soloist/bandleader (via solo recordings and tours), but as a top-shelf, first-call player on the NYC scene.

As a band, One For All has worked hard to achieve their own unique sound, while at the same time placing a premium on assimilating the tradition from the masters. The group's members have played with a broad range of jazz icons over the years, including... Benny Golson, Curtis Fuller, Cedar Walton, Jackie McLean, George Coleman, Harold Mabern, Cecil Payne, James Moody, Jimmy Cobb, Louis Hayes, Jimmy Heath, Slide Hampton, Jon Faddis, Charles Earland, Lou Donaldson, Horace Silver, Freddie Hubbard, Pharoah Sanders, Johnny Griffin and Chick Corea.

Since 1997, the band has recorded 12 CD's and continues to garner rave reviews for their live performances in clubs, concert halls and festivals around the world. One For All has also recorded extensively for the Venus and Criss Cross Jazz labels.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
