Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte – You Don’t Know the Life (Rare Noise)
As with most of Jamie Saft’s records, the interweaving of originals and covers on You Don’t Know The Life is a mark of ingenious artistry at work. The multi-instrumentalist/composer and his simpatico compatriots create music that runs a remarkably broad gamut of emotions. And in its roughly forty-five-minute arc of feeling, a listener can end up equally drained and enlivened by this trio’s own journey through the heart and soul (and beyond).
Tour Dates – Jamie Saft’s New Zion Trio February 2020
“It’s a one-of-a-kind thing. Jamie Saft, the high priest of acoustic groove and heir to Sun Ra’s spatial explorations, who also reigns over microtonal metal and maybe even rock-minded syncopation, is known for his unique, unwavering creative impulse.”
Jamie Saft is a virtuoso pianist, keyboardist, producer, and composer from New York. His stylistic versatility, multi-instrumentalist capabilities, and production skills have been featured with Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, HR, The B-52’s, John Zorn, John Adams, Laurie Anderson, Donovan, Antony and the Johnsons, and Iggy Pop. Saft leads the New Zion Trio, Jamie Saft Trio, and Jamie Saft Quartet. Saft has collaborated with legends of music including Wadada Leo Smith, Roswell Rudd, Marshall Allen, Danny Ray Thompson, Dave Liebman, Joe Morris, Hamid Drake, Bobby Previte, Steve Swallow, Darryl Jenifer, and Cyro Baptista.
Saft has composed a number of original film scores including the Oscar nominated “Murderball” and Sundance winner “God Grew Tired Of Us.” Saft has also scored extensively for Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, Vice TV, NFL Football, CBS, and A&E. Saft currently runs the independent record label Veal Records as well as Potterville International Sound, both based out of Kingston, NY. Jamie Saft on Bandcamp
