Six Ate

Joanne Brackeen

BUY / LISTEN

American pianist and composer Joanne Brackeen has been called the “Picasso of jazz piano”, for her unique style and complex improvisations.  Her work is at the forefront of what avant-garde jazz can be, and she has long been one of the giants of modal, post-pop piano.

A child prodigy, Brackeen began performing professionally by the time she was 12 years old.  She has worked  with such luminaries as George Benson, Lee Dexter Gordon, Bobby Hutcherson Art Blakey, Jo Henderson and Stan Getz.

Six Ate from 1975 is Brackeen's extraordinary debut album. Shortly after this recording she joined Stan Getz's group where she garnered significant exposure. But it is here that we hear her first recorded date as a band leader. It should be noted that this album was originally released on the Choice label under the title Snooze, before it was issued on Candid Records in 1996.

Joanne Brackeen, Cecil McBee, Billy Hart
