     Ben Allison

Born: Nov 17, 1966
Genre: Jazz
Styles: Post-Bop, Modern Creative, Hard Bop, Avant-Garde Jazz
Instruments: Bass

A versatile acoustic bassist with an adventurous spirit, Ben Allison has often excelled in avant-garde settings but has proven himself to be equally capable of playing hard bop. The East Coast native was only nine when he began studying music, and 22 when, in 1989, he graduated from New York University with a B.A. in jazz performance. In 1992, Allison founded the Jazz Composers Collective, a musician-run, nonprofit organization that encouraged artists to take risks and didn't shy away from the avant-garde when presenting many concerts in New York. It was in 1994 that the Collective launched the Herbie Nichols Project, which Allison co-directed with pianist Frank Kimbrough; it used concerts and CDs (including Love Is Proximity on Soul Note) to celebrate the music of the great-but-underexposed bebop pianist Herbie Nichols. In addition to being employed on albums by Lee Konitz, Ted Nash, and Eddie Gale, the 1990s found Allison playing live with Clark Terry, Gary Bartz, Jack Walrath, Kenny Werner, Dave Liebman, Judi Silvano, Michael Blake, and Clifford Jordan. Allison first recorded under his own name when he did Seven Arrows for Palmetto in 1996, and has also recorded for Palmetto with his adventurous group Medicine Wheel. Third Eye followed in 1999 and Riding the Nuclear Tiger appeared two years later.
