Saxphonist Jason Robinson Interviewed at All About Jazz...and More!

SOURCE: Published:
Jason Robinson Saxophonist Jason Robinson is alert and ready to work his place in the scheme of things, from jazz itself and music at large, to the existential particulars of philosophy. A supple technician with a penchant for abstract thought, he splices together different strains of theory and logic with combinatory takes on period, school and style. A deeply ingrained reverence and sense for jazz history comes out in his carefully calibrated, often composed body of multivalent, multicolored music. Equally informed by history and theory, philosophy and feeling, he courses swiftly between rough and smooth, hard and soft, hot and—being Californian—cool.

All About Jazz Contributor c" Gordon Marshall spoke with Robinson recently, about his three new releases, all issued the same month—The Two Faces of Janus (Cuneiform, 2010), Cerulean Landscape (Clean Feed, 2010) (with Anthony Davis
