Bennie Maupin Interviewed at AAJ


Sign in to view read count
Bennie Maupin may be a multi-instrumentalist, but he's best-known as the bass clarinetist on albums including Miles Davis' classic Bitches Brew and Herbie Hancock's Head Hunters.

His own discography as a leader is small, but he made a welcome return this year with the Cryptogramophone release, Penumbra. A more intimate, acoustic set, it features Maupin with bassist Darek Oles, drummer Michael Stephans and longtime associate, percussionist Daryl Munyungo Jackson.

AAJ New York contributor Rex Butters had the opportunity to speak at length with Maupin, about his career to date, working with Miles and, of course, Penumbra.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
