Bassist Todd Sickafoose Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published:
Todd Sickafoose With the release of his unique, understated, and critically acclaimed Tiny Resistors (Cryptogramophone, 2008), bassist/composer Todd Sickafoose suddenly and unintentionally upped the ante for indie jazz. Surging ahead of such indie mainstays (and label mates) as Nels Cline, Steuart Liebig, and boss Jeff Gauthier, Sickafoose has garnered strong press from such diverse sources as Bass Player Magazine, PopMatters, Jazz Times, USA Today, and The New York Times. The daring, spacious compositions and performances on Tiny Resistors, Sickafoose's third CD collection, have succeeded in obliterating all the subheadings of “modern," “progressive" and “new" - settling, instead, on eminently appealing.

A longtime coconspirator of Ani Di Franco's, Sickafoose finds himself in the enviable position of touring behind a musical statement that seems to be irresistible.



Sickafoose spoke with AAJ Contributor Rex Butters about finding his way to Tiny Resistors and more. Check out Todd Sickafoose: The Art of Non-Resistance at AAJ today!
