“The thoughtful Bay Area reedist Steven Lugerner has already forged a career defined by sharp left turns. Clearly rooted
in jazz tradition, JACKNIFE is a hungry, young combo that feasts on the themes of the great Jackie McLean.” - 3.5 Stars,
Downbeat Magazine (Peter Margasak) August 2016
San Francisco saxophonist Steven Lugerner continues
his explorations of the music of jazz legend Jackie
McLean with JACKNIFE, a hard-hitting West Coast
post-bop quintet. Exploring tunes from McLean's seminal
early- and mid-1960s Blue Note albums Jacknife, It's Time,
Let Freedom Ring, and New Soil, JACKNIFE brings
together a formidable cast of rising talent, including
trumpeter JJ Kirkpatrick, drummer Michael
Mitchell, bassist Garret Lang, pianist Richard Sears
and on ver special occasion, piano legend Larry Willis.
Collectively, the members of JACKNIFE have toured
internationally and collaborated between the New York
City, West Coast and European jazz scenes. Members of the
group have accompanied entertainers such as Louis CK
and Beyonce, in addition to working with a heavyweight
roster of jazz masters, including drum legend Albert
“Tootie” Heath, pianist Fred Hersch, trumpeter
Wynton Marsalis, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel,
saxophonists Dayna Stephens, Miguel Zenón and
drummer Matt Wilson.
“JACKNIFE proves to be a sharp, cutting-edge band, even with a repertoire
over 50 years old. Lugerner, especially, channels the creative heat and searing,
tart tone of the young Jackie McLean” - George Kanzler
(NYC Jazz Record, March 2016 Issue)
"Lugerner’s approach to making music is very much his own; and he seems to
be pursuing it to impressive advantage." - Stephen Smoliar
(San Francisco Examiner)
