saxophone, tenor

Detroit-born tenor saxophonist JD Allen doesn’t have to play a lot of notes to impress. Much like his tutor James Carter, his playing contains strong gospel influences. In New York he cut his teeth in Betty Carter’s band, among others. Critics often praise him as one of the tenor giants of jazz history.

As a composer JD Allen has shown influences of modern classical masters such as Olivier Messiaen and Arnold Schoenberg, but on his recent album Americana his most important source of inspiration is early blues.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
