“Tucker Antell is one of a new breed of super musician."
“Tucker is a one-of-a-kind force in contemporary jazz improvisation. As secure as his position is on my short list, I am on his list of long-time fans.”
“Super musician” Tucker Antell, is a Boston-area rising star to watch for. Growing up across the U.S., the tenor saxophonist has had an impressive 2016 year: from performing with Grammy-winning Jazz heavy weights to recording his first visual EP. And now, he is on his way to recording his first full album of originals later in 2017. “I feel this music is one of the most honest representations of myself, and this album will be the product of years of careful thought about what that sounds like,” says Antell. Grime Scene will draw upon all of his influences and experience with not only Jazz, but also the Blues and groove-infused music he has spent that last ten years playing across New England. Tucker’s passion for this specific fusion of music comes across in a fun and honest way: singable melodies, danceable grooves, and stretched, creative improvisations--with a few twists and turns along the way. “I didn't want to have to leave out any of the elements of the different music that I love, so I tried to combine them all, and the result is this fun collage that isn’t watered down or overly heady. I'm lucky to live in an area where there are so many talented musicians. My aim is to include a variety of some of the Boston area's top players to really bring these tunes to life and feature everyone's personality in a way that really brings the whole thing together."
