Rob Sudduth is a Bay Area native, a saxophonist whose direct, soulful style is the result of his
experience in San Francisco’s eclectic music scene. Now living in New York City, he is equally
comfortable performing with blues, jazz and rock bands, and blends the genres effortlessly. He
brings the honesty of the blues to jazz, and the swing and melodic conception of Jazz to blues
music, without compromising the essence of either. Recent asscociations include Norah Jones ( on
the CD “Not Too Late”), the Ben Goldberg Quintet ( including the CD “The Door, the Hat, the
Chair, the Fact”), and projects with singer Sasha Dobson and pianist Dred Scott. He frequently
performed in the Tony-winning Billy Joel/Twyla Tharp production on Broadway, Movin’ Out.
He continues to work with jazz composer/pianist Graham Connah’s ensemble, which has
appeared at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the San Francisco Jazz Festival and at the Knitting Factory
in New York, and with drummer Scott Amendola. While living in San Francisco, he performed
regularly with guitarist Bruce Forman, and led a hard-bop quintet featuring pianist Mark Levine.
He performs regularly in Italy with organist Alberto Marsico in his group Tenor Madness, leasds a
quartet with Enzo Carpentieri and Carmelo Tartamella, and is featured in the varied projects of
pianist/composer Claudio Angeleri, also guesting as a clinician at Centro Didattico produzione
Musica in Bergamo, and for the Bergamo Jazz Festival. He played and recorded with Franco
Ambrosetti, Gabriele Comeglio, Emilio Soana, Giulio Visibelli. In October 2003 he toured Italy
with guitarist Stef Burns (Vasco Rossi Band). He has recorded and performed with blues and
swing acts such as Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums and The Johnny Nocturne Band, and
since 1994 has been touring and recording with Huey Lewis and the News ( and is cocomposer
with Huey and Chris Hayes of “So Little Kindness” on “Time Flies...Greatest Hits” on Elektra
Records).
Kind of blue
E’ un disco cult del 1959 del trombettista Miles Davis che rappresenta la chiave di volta del jazz
moderno sia per le tecniche modali adottate sia per l’approccio creativo alla composizione
istantanea (improvvisazione). In questo metodologia di lavoro di Davis si sono intraviste diverse
analogie con altri artisti contemporanei nell’ambito della pittura e della scrittura come Jackson
Pollock, con la sua action painting, e Jack Kerouac che nel suo celebre romanzo On the road
utilizzò un unico rotolo di carta per non interrompere il flusso delle idee.
Il concerto intende quindi offrire alcuni spunti di riflessione sui meccanismi della creazione artistica
rimandando ora alle tecniche musicali ora a quelle pittoriche e letterarie, creando un appassionante
viaggio nella creatività del XX e XXI secolo.
