Trumpeter Scott Tinkler Interviewed at AAJ

Scott Tinkler
Bassist/composer Lindsey Horner recently said, “I think one thing that has really changed in the past quarter century is that the music has become so broad, so truly international and genre-encompassing that the days when jazz was one very definable, finite thing are well and truly gone." These remarks also serve to introduce this interview with the Australian trumpeter Scott Tinkler. The recent emergence of a small cadre of Australian jazz artists has yet to gather the notice of, say, Indian pianist Vijay Iyer or alto saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa.

Tinkler brings, perhaps, the broadest outré sensibility of them all. His solo trumpet recording, Backwards (Extreme, 2007), poses some of the most extreme sonic sounds this side of the post-Coltrane continuum (to borrow from Braxton-speak). Yet Tinkler certainly has all the talent to convey the standard jazz curriculum, as can be heard in his quartet with pianist Paul Grabowski. This is a compelling artist from down under, with a sound and conception all his own.

AAJ contributor Ludwig vanTrikt spoke with Tinkler in 2008, just before he traveled to New York for the Festival of New Trumpet Music (FONT). Check out Scott Tinkler: Trumpet Down Under at AAJ today!
