AARON KRUZIKI QUINTET FT. LORIN BENEDICT

Saxophonist and clarinetist Aaron Kruziki has been a core member of Andy Milne’s Dapp Theory (NYC) since 2010 and has shared the stage with Fred Hersch, Ben Monder, Stanley Clarke, Ralph Alessi, David Gilmore, and the late Joan Rivers. He melds inspirations from across genres into his music, his biggest influences being David Bowie, Miles Davis and Olivier Messiaen.

Lorin Benedict is an improvising vocalist (scat singer, essentially) living in Emeryville, California. He attempts to introduce more structurally involved elements into the field of vocal improvisation. Most of his work in this area is centered loosely in the jazz idiom. Recently, Lorin has co-led small groups (duos, trios) in which the roles of the musicians are somewhat mutable even in contexts where highly structured forms are being played. Examples include Bleeding Vector with Berkeley guitarist Eric Vogler, and another duo project with east bay saxophonist Kasey Knudsen. Together, these three musicians jointly lead the trio project, The Holly Martins. He has also co-led another duo project with Brooklyn-based drummer Sam Ospovat. Lorin joined the fold of musicians rather late in life, at the age of 31, after many years of listening to recordings and live performances, many of which involved members of his immediate family (all of whom are/were orchestral musicians in the western classical tradition).
