FORBES GRAHAM / JOSH JEFFERSON
at Karpeles Manuscript Museum | Jacksonville
Organized by Tim Albro and Jamison Williams
Development: EAUF (Experimental Arts Union of Florida)
Forbes Graham is a trumpet player, composer, and electronic musician based in Boston. He has performed and or recorded across North America and Europe with David Gross, Rakalam Bob Moses, Joe Morris, Luther Gray, Jim Hobbs, Raqib Hassan, Syd Smart, Birgit Ulher, Leonel Kaplan, Jack Wright, Tatsuya Nakatani, Daniel Levin, Ras Moshe, Laurence Cook, Jacob William, Cooper-Moore, Darius Jones, Sabir Mateen, Pandelis Karayorgis, Kevin Frenette and many more wonderful artists.
”Jefferson is a player with deft reflexes and coordination, and a master of what could be called 'protective mimicry,' if he were not so original. In his playing he may evoke meadows rife with wildlife, the long trill of a hermit thrush underscored by the bellow of bullfrogs--or, the roar of a crocodile splashing into the Everglades of his native Florida. Equally at home in solo or group settings, he makes each context a true environment, with an ear quick to pick up on what his fellow musicians are doing, and nimbly knits together audience and group in sympathetic union.”
