Skerik Interviewed at AAJ


Sign in to view read count
Seattle-born saxophonist Skerik isn't a jazz musician. Or at least, he wouldn't say he is, because no contemporary instrumentalist is more indifferent to--even contemptuous of--musical boundaries and genres.

Still, through projects like Garage a Trois and associations with artists including 8-string guitarist Charlie Hunter and drummer Bobby Previte, not to mention his own Syncopated Taint Septet, it's the closest thing to a label that can be applied to this genre-bending/blending musician.

AAJ Contributing Editor Paul Olson caught up with Skerik for an interview that puts a spotlight on this remarkable artist.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
