Wayne Krantz - Separate Cages mp3 download


Wayne Krantz is an American guitarist and composer praised for his utilization of complex rhythmic and harmonic concepts.

Released: June 17, 1997.

Wayne Krantz is an American guitarist and composer. He has performed and recorded with Steely Dan, Michael Brecker, Donald Fagen, Billy Cobham, Chris Potter, David Binney and Carla Bley. Since the early 1990s has focused primarily on his solo career, mostly as the leader of a trio. Krantz was born in Corvallis, Oregon. He released his first album, Signals, in 1990, sporting an array of recognized jazz musicians such as Dennis Chambers, Don Alias, Anthony Jackson, and others.

Krantz is essentially a hard, muscular player, while Stern favors a lyrical, subtle approach influenced by Pat Metheny. Nonetheless, the two were often paired in the 1980s and 1990s (which, in the 1960s or 1970s, would have been like having Chet Baker co-lead a two-trumpet group with Freddie Hubbard or uniting Phil Woods and Paul Desmond in a two-alto front line)

I had the pleasure of seeing Wayne Krantz once in NYC with some friends, and then again in Raleigh, NC - both small clubs. I don't know how you'd describe his talents to a guitar player, let alone anyone else. What I love HERE is how well he and Leni made this record work. Leni is a great guitarist with her own merits. Sadly, she's not well-known. This album should change that - it's just got some great music from both musicians, and it's clear to me that they gave each other space, support, and encouragement to be free. This CD just makes me wish I still lived in NYC.

In 1996, Krantz released an acoustic album with Leni Stern, dubbed Separate Cages. Krantz formed a new trio in 1997, Tim Lefebvre on bass and Keith Carlock on drums, playing a style of music that he later announced would no longer fit small clubs; on June 28, 2007, he played his final regular Thursday night gig at New York's 55 Bar. Krantz's first three solo albums were released on the jazz label Enja Records.

Wayne Krantz (born July 26, 1956, Corvallis, Oregon, United States) is an American jazz fusion guitarist. He has played with top artists such as Steely Dan, Michael Brecker, Billy Cobham, and others, but is most active as a solo performer. Krantz released his first album, Signals, in 1990, sporting an array of recognized jazz musicians such as Dennis Chambers, Leni Stern, Anthony Jackson, and others. In 2012, Krantz released Howie 61 (a reference to Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited), which includes performances by Keith Carlock, James Genus, John Patitucci, Charley Drayton, Tal Wilkenfeld, Vinnie Colaiuta, Anton Fig, Yasushi Miura, Jeremy Stacey, Paul Stacey, Pino Palladino, Gabriela Anders, Kenny Wollesen, Nate Wood, Henry Hey and Owen Biddle. In 2014, Krantz released Good Piranha/Bad Piranha, a live-in-the-studio album featuring his two dominant trio combinations at the time: Nate Wood/Keith Carlock and Tim Lefebvre/Nate Wood.

When it comes to fusion guitarists, Wayne Krantz and Leni Stern are like night and day. Krantz is essentially a hard, muscular player, while Stern favors a lyrical, subtle approach influenced by Pat Metheny. Nonetheless, the two were often paired in the 1980s and 1990s (which, in the 1960s or 1970s, would have been like having Chet Baker co-lead a two-trumpet group with Freddie Hubbard or uniting Phil Woods and Paul Desmond in a two-alto front line). There were times when they complemented one another, as well as times when Krantz made the mistake of overpowering her.
