Me, Myself, and Eye: Stephen Crump

Join us for an afternoon of solo jazz with Grammy-nominated, Memphis-bred bassist/composer Stephen Crump, a rising light on the New York music scene. As collaborator with mainstream jazz luminaries, downtown explorers, singer/songwriters and others, he has become known for the elegance and purposeful groove of his acoustic and electric bass playing, and for transforming his instrument into a speaking entity with magnetic pull on audiences. As a composer, he is emerging as a singular voice. Stephan has performed and recorded in the US and across the globe with a diverse list of musicians- from Motown legends Ashford and Simpson to Portishead’s Dave McDonald, The Violent Femmes’ Gordon Gano, Michael McDonald, Patti Austin, Jorma Kaukonen, Lucy Kaplansky, Mahavishnu Project, Big Ass Truck, Dave Liebman, Billy Hart, Sonny Fortune, Greg Osby, Kenny Werner, Bobby Previte, and late blues legend Johnny Clyde Copeland.

Currently, Stephan can be heard as a long-standing member of Vijay Iyer Trio, Jim Campilongo Electric Trio, Jen Chapin Trio, and his own Rosetta Trio.
