At first glance bassist Jeff Denson appears to reinvent himself on every album, and his 12th release as leader or co-leader, 6th under his name, Outside My Window, might seem like his biggest departure yet. Possessing a huge, galvanizing sound and a lyrically-charged compositional vision, the supremely versatile Denson has earned recognition over the past 15 years as one of his generation’s definitive bassists. Jeff has performed around the world in many of the top jazz festivals and venues with some of the biggest names in jazz such as Dave Douglas, Brian Blade, Joe Lovano and many more including being a member of jazz legend, Lee Konitz’s quartet for over 12 years. Slated for release on his label Ridgeway Records on May 4, 2018, Outside My Window recalibrates his already expansive array of creative outlets by giving equal weight to his vocals. Working with a stellar international quartet, Denson delivers an emotionally taut program weaving together striking interpretations of iconic songs and deeply felt originals.
“Artists are always dreaming up what we’re doing,” he says. “My goal has always been very clearly to create my own musical world.”
