Jeff Denson is a creative musician who searches for new expression while fronting many different ensembles.  He’s a full professor at the C J C,  yet has developed in the tradition that dates back to the earliest days of jazz  –  listening to the masters, and straight-up hands-on experience in the trenches. 

He has recorded 10 albums as leader/co-leader and over a dozen more as a featured sideman – four with alto great  Lee Konitz.  He’s also performed with remarkable musicians like:  Joe Lovano, Jane Ira Bloom, Dave Douglas, Howard Alden, Warren Wolf and many more.

“Jeff Denson takes modern jazz to a new level.  His many flashes of compositional genius bring much that is fresh, new and unexpected.  This makes his music instantly recognizable.”   Stefen Pieper, Jazzthetik, Germany

This quartet is unique, it features Grammy nominated Paul Hanson and performs at a very high level!
