Our good friend Jeremy Dutton will be coming to The Jazz Gallery once again this week, and as always, he’s got something new up his sleeve. Jeremy doesn’t need much of an introduction. After all, he was profiled extensively on this site over the last few months as part of the Gallery’s Mentoring Series. You can find those posts here, here, and here.
Here’s the abridged rundown: Jeremy is a supremely talented 21-year-old drummer from Houston, Texas, experienced as both a sideman and a bandleader. He grew up obsessing over Art Blakey and Tony Williams, and has followed in the footsteps of great Houston drummers including Eric Harland, Kendrick Scott, and Chris Dave. In 2014, he toured toured across Africa and Europe with Sachal Vasandani, spent time playing with the Cambridge-New York group iiii, and spent several fall nights at the Gallery with Taylor Eigsti.
Now, at the top of 2015, he’ll be putting on “Everything I Am,” drawing from his 2013 album “I Am.” And he’s got a killer lineup, with Philip Dizack on trumpet, Nir Felder on guitar, James Francies on piano and Linda Oh on bass.
This post doesn’t do justice to all the work he’s done over the past few years, so please go check out the other interviews and check out his tunes on Soundcloud.
