SET ONE: JC SANFORD'S TRIOCRACY FEATURING BRANDON WOZNIAK AND BRUCE THORNTON

SET TWO: ANDREW BRODER AND DAVE KING

 

JC Sanford¹s Triocracy featuring Brandon Wozniak and Bruce Thornton

Triocracy was formed in 1998 in Boston and continued to evolve through JC
Sanford¹s 16 years in New York City. The unconventional ³chamber jazz²
trio of trombone and 2 saxophones performs JC¹s original works, plus
arrangements of music by diverse artists such as Stevie Wonder, Steven
Sondheim, George Frideric Handel, Gerry Mulligan, and Billy Joel. This
will be the premiere performance of the new MN ensemble personnel
featuring Brandon Wozniak on tenor sax and Bruce Thornton on alto and bari
sax.

After 16 years in New York City, MN native and trombonist/composer JC
Sanford relocated to his home state in 2016. A long time student of the
legendary Bob Brookmeyer, Sanford has performed as a trombonist along side
the likes of Danilo Pérez, Matt Wilson, Bill Stewart, and Donny McCaslin.
He was also recently selected as a ³Rising Star² trombonist in DownBeat
magazine¹s 2017 Critic¹s Poll. A sought-after conductor of new large
ensemble music in NYC, he conducts the twice-Grammy-nominated John
Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, Joel Harrison¹s Infinite Possibility, and the
Alice Coltrane Orchestra featuring Ravi Coltrane and Jack DeJohnette. His
2014 JC Sanford Orchestra album Views from the Inside won international
acclaim and was awarded the prestigious Aaron Copland Fund for Recording.
His compositions and arrangements have been performed by Dave Liebman,
John Abercrombie, and Ingrid Jensen.
