Black Cat JAZZ@theEDGE Summer Festival!! Presents: Brent Canter w/ Adam Klipple & Charles Ruggiero – A Modern Organ Trio
Brent Canter – guitar
Adam Klipple – organ
Charles Ruggiero – drums
“Canter is creating a new vocabulary for jazz, the new jazz standards for his generation”
– Hollywood Weekly
“The strong point of guitarist Brent Canter’s music … is that you can come to it from any perspective: You don’t need a degree in jazz studies or a deep understanding of John Coltrane to understand it. New listeners who’ve spent their lives listening to Tween Wave can relate no less than those of us who’ve explored every millimeter of the jazz continuum”
– The Wall Street Journal
Guitarist Brent Canter will make his debut performance at Black Cat with his modern take on the classic organ trio format. A Los Angeles native who has spent time as part of the New York music scene, Brent has earned critical praise and features in publications ranging from Jazz Times to the Wall Street Journal. An ASCAP Award winning composer, Brent’s unique writing style blends influences ranging from classic jazz to alternative rock to drum and bass music. His sound is characterized by often-distorted guitar playing and legato lead lines with deep grooves, dynamic harmony and memorable melodies. A student of Blue Note legend Kenny Burrell while in college, over the last decade Brent has developed a distinctly modern style on the guitar which draws on classic sounds, but pushes the instrument into new territory sonically and technically.
Brent has performed across the US and in Europe at venues including the Kennedy Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Smalls Jazz Club and Le Duc des Lombards in Paris. His bands live and in studio have regularly featured notable players including Bob Reynolds, Ben Wendel, Sam Barsh, Linda Oh, Julian Pollack, Max Haymer, Seamus Blake and Pat Bianchi.
