Dennis Gonzalez

One could make a good case that trumpeter/composer Dennis Gonzalez is the most important avant garde jazzman to come out of Texas since Ornette Coleman and Dewey Redman rewrote the improvisers’ rule book. Certainly no Texas jazz artist is more dedicated or versatile. Gonzalez has been all over the world playing his often lyrical, melodically rich brand of very modern jazz for decades, while also making hay as a visual artist, poet, educator, record label founder and public radio broadcaster. Along the way, he has played with such greats as Andrew Cyrille, Cecil Taylor and Max Roach, plus mainstream Texas trumpeter Roy Hargrove. He makes a rare Twin Cities appearance to present his “Hymn Project” with hometown heavyweights Nathan Hanson, Brandon Wozniak, Chris Bates and Pete Hennig. Tom Surowicz
