David Krakauer's Ancestral Groove

David Krakauer (cl), Keepalive (sampler), Sheryl Bailey (git), Jerome Harris (b), Michael Sarin (dr)

„David Krakauer​ is to clarinettists what Jonas​ Kaufmann is to operatic tenors, Keith Jarrett to improvising pianists, Bela​ Fleck to banjo players and Zakir​ Hussain to tabla players. He is not just an utterly distinctive benchmark, he extends his instrument's potential in ways that mess with one's mind, while underpinning this with that fathomless emotional content.“ -John Shand, the Sydney Morning Herald David Krakauer – ANCESTRAL GROOVE DAVID KRAKAUER (Clarinet, Bass Clarinet). Only a select few artists have the ability to convey their message to the back row, to galvanize an audience with a visceral power that connects on a universal level. David Krakauer is such an artist. Widely considered one of the greatest clarinetists on the planet, he has been praised internationally as a key innovator in modern klezmer as well as a major voice in classical music. Known simply as “Krakauer” to his fervent following, he is nothing less than an American original who has embarked on a tremendous journey transforming the music of his Eastern European Jewish heritage into something uniquely contemporary. That journey has lead Krakauer to an astounding diversity of projects and collaborations ranging from solo appearances with orchestras to major festival concerts with his own improvisation based bands. He has shared the stage with a wide array of artists such as the Klezmatics, Fred Wesley, Itzhak Perlman, Socalled, Eiko and Koma, Leonard Slatkin, and Iva Bitova while being sought after by such composers as Danny Elfman, Osvaldo Golijov, David Del Tredici, John Zorn, George Tsontakis, Mohammed Fairouz, and Wlad Marhulets to interpret their works. In addition, he has performed with renowned string quartets including the Kronos, Tokyo, and the Emerson and as soloist with orchestras such as the Orchestre de Lyon, the Orquestra Sinfonica de Madrid, the Phoenix Symphony, the Brooklyn Philharmonic, the Dresdener Philharmonie, and the Detroit Symphony, among many others. SHERYL BAILEY (Electric Guitar). Sheryl Bailey is rated among the foremost bop-based guitarists to have emerged from the 90s. Her attack can be direct and hard swinging, but she also exudes subtlety, elegance of phrase and a pure, warm liquid sound. She was voted a new “Rising Star” by the DownBeat critics in 2013. Bill Milkowski has written about her: “A modernist burner with an abundance of Pat Martino-style chops, Bailey prefers angular lines, odd harmonies, and the occasional touch of dissonance as she sails up and down the fretboard with fluid abandon.” — Jazz Times Magazine JEROME HARRIS (Bass). Jerome Harris has won international recognition as one of the more versatile and penetrating stylists of his generation on both guitar and bass guitar. Jerome’s first major professional performances were as bass guitarist with Sonny Rollins in 1978; from 1988 to 1994 he was Rollins’ guitarist, and appears on five of his recordings. Jerome has also recorded and/or performed live on six continents with such jazz notables as Jack DeJohnette, Bill Frisell, Ray Anderson, Don Byron, Bobby Previte, Oliver Lake, Paul Motian, Amina Claudine Myers, Bob Stewart, George Russell, Julius Hemphill, and Bob Moses. His extensive international work includes several stints in Japan with Sonny Rollins, as well as tours organized by the U.S. State Department: to India and the Middle East with vibraphonist Jay Hoggard’s group, to five African nations with Oliver Lake’s reggae/jazz/funk band "Jump Up," to India and south Asia with flutist Jamie Baum and guitarist Kenny Wessel, and to six African nations with soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome and guitarist Marvin Sewell. Jerome Harris has performed on more than sixty recordings, making for a wide-ranging discography. His recordings as bandleader include Rendezvous—the first-ever jazz release by the audio connoisseur magazine Stereophile—which captures the drive and grace of his quintet in gorgeous high-resolution sound. On Hidden in Plain View (New World), Jerome’s acoustic bass guitar underpins an all-star group reinterpreting compositions by jazz trailblazer Eric Dolphy. Among Harris’s latest appearances on record as featured sideman are Bob Stewart’s Connections: Mind The Gap (Sunnyside), A Trumpet In The Morning by the Marty Ehrlich Large Ensemble (New World), Jack DeJohnette’s Oneness (ECM), Roy Nathanson/Sotto Voce’s Complicated Day (Enja), Checkpoint by David Krakauer's Ancestral Groove (Label Bleu), Inch By Inch by Yard Byard: range of musics—rock, pop, blues, country, gospel, folk and R&B—as both fan and player. After earning a B.A. in psychology and social relations at Harvard College in 1973, Harris attended New England Conservatory of Music as a scholarship student in jazz guitar. He graduated with honors in 1977. MICHAEL SARIN (Drums) Over the last twenty years, drummer Michael Sarin has been at the center of New York City’s genre bending jazz and improvisation community. His versatility and musical wit helped forge long associations with forwardlooking artists Thomas Chapin, Dave Douglas, Myra Melford, Ben Allison, and David Krakauer. Born in 1965, Michael was raised on Bainbridge Island, WA—a ferryboat ride from Seattle. His interest in music and the drums came early, nourished by both the record collections of his parents and older sister, and by the AM radio he received at age seven. His formal music education began during high school with drummer Dave Coleman, Sr. He went on to study with Tom Collier at the University of Washington, and later with Jerry Granelli at the Cornish College of the Arts. Since moving to New York in 1989, Michael’s unique style and approach to the drum set has been highly sought after by NYC and European musicians looking to expand the definitions of jazz and improvised music. He has contributed to recordings by the forementioned artists as well as those of Frank Carlberg, Anthony Coleman, Mark Dresser, Marty Ehrlich, Mark Helias, Denman Maroney, Simon Nabatov, Mario Pavone, Ned Rothenberg, and Fred Wesley--recordings found on numerous music critics’ Top Ten CD year-end lists. Michael performs all over the world--in major and minor festivals; concert halls famous and infamous, big and small. He can be heard on recent recordings of Frank Carlberg, Mark Dresser, Erik Friedlander, David Krakauer, and Leslie Pintchik. KEEPALIVE (Sampler) Jeremy Flower has been called the "secret weapon" of Boston's Unlockedgroove collective, one of the premier groups of techno producers on the US East Coast. He performs solo as Keepalive, and is one half of Rainbow Bright with Mike Uzzi, aka Smartypants (Traum, Zero G). Jeremy has also shared the stage with several other world-class elite electronic music producers, including: Isolee, Sammy Dee, Greg Shiff, Keith Fullerton-Whitman (Hrvatski), Broker/Dealer, Greg Davis, Marumari, Frank Heiss, and Jake Fairley. Perhaps his most prestigious collaboration has been with Argentine composer Osvaldo Golijov, with whom he worked on the Grammy-nominated Ayre and the one-act opera Ainadamar also nominated for two grammys. Both of these works have been recorded for and released by Deutsche Grammophon. For the iTunes release of the opera, Flower was commissioned to compose a downtempo bonus track based on one of the Arias. Flower and Golijov have worked on pieces for the Kronos Quartet and Canadian Singer Tanya Tagaq Gilles. They have just finished a film score for Francis Ford Coppola's newest movie Youth Without Youth. Jeremy Flower graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music with a degree in Composition, where he studied with Michael Gandolfi and Caleb Morgan. Since moving the computer to the center of his creative focus, he has been an active participant in the underground electronic music worlds of Boston and New York – playing clubs such as Filter 14, Liquids, Galapagos, Sin-e, Middlesex, the Phoenix Landing and Tonic as well as countless house parties. He has also been heard dropping his laptop drawl with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Jamie Haddad, Mark Dresser, Gustavo Santaolalla and David Krakauer in venues such as Carnegie Hall, LA's Disney Hall, Lincoln Center's Rose Theater, the Santa Fe Opera and Cleveland's Severance Hall alongside
