Tony Glausi & His Nine-Piece Band: One-Dimensional Man
ODM is an all-original record produced by trumpeter and composer Tony Glausi. It is nothing less than the impressive debut studio release of his nine-piece band, formed in early 2015. The ODM project was inspired by Herbert Marcuse's groundbreaking philosophical text, One-Dimensional Man, written in response to the rise of advanced industrial society, which he argues creates false needs and leaves us "one-dimensional" in our ability to both think and act. Throughout this album, Glausi and his band explore the traditions of funk and hip-hop through a contemporary jazz lens, expressing via music Marcuse's frustration with our inability to think and act out of our own genuine free will. Released September 23, 2016 independently.
Tony Glausi: Identity Crisis
Featuring 10 original compositions for small jazz ensemble, Identity Crisis is Glausi's debut jazz record as a bandleader and producer. It conveys themes of soul-searching, perseverance, change, and resolution through uniquely inspired compositions. Band members include Tony Glausi (trumpet & flugelhorn), Todd DelGiudice (alto sax), Greg Goebel (piano), Lyle Hopkins (bass), Ken Mastrogiovanni (drums), Josh Hettwer (tenor sax & clarinet), Torrey Newhart (piano), Sean Peterson (bass), and Adam Carlson (drums). Says flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny: “Let the world be on notice: an exciting new voice has arrived. I’m impressed with the conception for the project as a whole... I LOVE the sequence. The high drama of track one, followed by the playfulness of track two, then the romantic lyricism of track three, and so on. It’s just right. The CD flows like a well-programmed concert or great meal. And so many inspired moments. At one point I thought, “this tune sounds like Booker Little on Candid!” then I noticed the title is ‘Longing For Little.’ Just beautiful.... Looking forward to repeated, deep listening.” Released Dec 16, 2015 independently.
