Review of Bangalore Breakdown/CD Diary
Which brings us to the question of what to call this music. Is it world music? Is it jazz? Is it some kind of new uncategorizable fusion that hasn’t yet been labeled? Whatever you call the music on Diary, it is undeniably heartfelt expression coming from a very genuine place. “I’ve played it to friends of mine who have heard me in more tame settings or even with the Mahavishnu Project, which is music that they recognize,” says Premik. “And they listen and say, ‘This is like a flavor of ice cream I’ve never tasted before.’”

And who doesn’t like ice cream? - Bill Milkowski Bill Milkowski is a regular contributor to Jazz Times

Credentials/Background

I was most fortunate to have studied under 2 great teachers: Joe Allard, former head of woodwinds at Juilliard and New England Conservatory, and with Ornette Coleman. This gave me a diverse background in teaching methods which I use to this day. I feel that Improvisation is one of the greatest forms of self-expression which can be brought out no matter what your current level of skill is on your instrument, although acquiring the basic skills of reading and technique are of course first and foremost. You are welcome to e mail me at: premiktubbs@earthlink.net for more details on available hours, rates, etc.
