Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut
November 2007, Sweden -- Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut (New York City) is chosen as the first living artist to have a box set released by the Scandinavian record label Ayler Records.

Shurdut's Box Set documents the artist's journey into Environmental Tuning with the players who have been a part of his revolutionary vision.

This very unique box will include collaborations with Joe McPhee, Blaise Siwula, Brian Osborne, Daniel Carter, Luther Thomas, Sonny Simmons, Frode Gjerstad, Lukas Ligeti, Tom Chess, Marc Edwards, Sabir Mateen, Dave Sewelson, Marcus Cummins, Laura Cromwell, and many, many others.

Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut's choice of venue has often been as much a part of the creative process as the music itself. He is best known for tuning his guitar to the sound of his environment. He has also been known to tune his instrument while on the way to gigs by putting the bottom of his six string to the floor of the subway car.

Shurdut is a “Visionary," Mike Szajewski (WNUR, Chicago); with “Talent and Vision to Spare," Steven Loewy (All Music Guide). “But listeners beware - when you first get started there is no way back, you are going to be hooked for life," says Henrik Kaldahl.

“...referencing everything “from the wood rattling against the heater" to “the screams of the garbage trucks at 4 am" as Shurdut puts it, this trio has created an arresting urban sound picture. Just as the reality of big city life is expressed by yoking extended techniques to familiar jazz instruments, this CD defies metropolitan anomie with heartfelt sonic expressions that interconnect rather than alienate." -Ken Waxman, JAZZ WORD
