KUDZU is: Wayne Horvitz (keyboards) ~ Bobby Previte (drums) ~ Doug Weiselman (guitar, clarinet, sax) ~ Tucker Martine (electronics) ~ plus special guests: Reggie Watts ~ Eyvind Kang ~ Keith Lowe ~ Timothy Young ~ Robin Holcomb ~ Dave Carter ~ Danny Barnes

KUDZU began as an off-the-cuff studio-based collaboration between keyboardist Wayne Horvitz and electronicist Tucker Martine. They messed around with loops and samples and sequences, and soon brought in some of their many colorful and talented friends to help expand Kudzu's palette. Some of the resulting sketches were sent to Terminus Records down in Atlanta, GA. They dug Kudzu's ingenious directions, and gave them a budget to flesh out their visions. As I write this, Kudzu is on course to finish a record, and are looking forward to their 6/21/02 world-premier performance at Seattle's I-Spy with a bunch of great guests, and special opening acts Larkspur & DJ Saxton.

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.
