About the album

Perennial DownBeat Critics Poll winner, trombonist Michael Dease has embraced his role as a torchbearer for his mentors and the great jazz ancestors over his 15 deeply-swinging, state-of-the-art mainstream recordings. For The Other Shoe, Dease teams with the formidable composer Gregg Hill, expanding his rhythmic & harmonic palette with a flexible, in-the-moment perspective while remaining true to the sensibilities at his musical core. With the prodigiously talented pianist Geoffrey Keezer as a central foil, Dease brings along a wide-ranging collection of musicians, each specifically brought in for their unique outlooks and talents, including clarinetist Virginia MacDonald, Liany Mateo on bass, and drummer Colleen Clark, among others.
Der Posaunist Michael Dease, mehrjähriger Gewinner des DownBeat Critics Poll, hat seine Rolle als Wegbereiter für seine Mentoren und die großen Vorfahren des Jazz in seinen 15 tiefschwingenden, hochmodernen Mainstream-Aufnahmen angenommen. Für The Other Shoe hat sich Dease mit dem großartigen Komponisten Gregg Hill zusammengetan, um seine rhythmische und harmonische Palette mit einer flexiblen, zeitgemäßen Perspektive zu erweitern, während er seinem musikalischen Kerngefühl treu bleibt. Mit dem außerordentlich talentierten Pianisten Geoffrey Keezer als zentralem Gegenspieler bringt Dease eine breit gefächerte Sammlung von Musikern mit, von denen jeder speziell wegen seiner einzigartigen Ansichten und Talente hinzugezogen wurde, darunter die Klarinettistin Virginia MacDonald, Liany Mateo am Bass und die Schlagzeugerin Colleen Clark, um nur einige zu nennen.

Michael dease is one of the world's eminent trombonists, lending his versatile sound and signature improvisations to over 200 recordings and groups as diverse as grammy winning artists david sanborn, christian mcbride, michel camilo, and alicia keys. Born in augusta, ga, he played the saxophone and trumpet before choosing the trombone at age 17. In 2001, dease moved to new york city to become part of the historic first class of jazz students at the juilliard school, earning both bachelors and masters degrees, and quickly established a reputation as a brilliant soloist, sideperson, and bandleader. Dease, the winner of the 69th Annual DownBeat Magazine Poll for Trombonist of the Year and multi-Grammy award winner, is also a sought-after lead, section and bass trombonist with today’s leading jazz orchestras. His experiences include bands led by Christian McBride, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, Charles Tolliver, Rufus Reid, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and the Dizzy Gillespie All-Star Big Band. However, it is on the frontline of quintets and sextets led by master musicians like The Heath Brothers, Winard Harper, Renee Rosnes, Bill Charlap, Claudio Roditi, and Lewis Nash, where Dease has revitalized the trombone’s image. Not content to simply improvise, Dease arranges and composes for many different bands, constantly adjusting his tone and timbre to add just the right flavor to the music. Dease’s unique blend of curiosity, hard work and optimism has helped him earn worldwide recognition, including awards from ASCAP, The International Trombone Association, Yamaha, Eastern Trombone Workshop, New York Youth Symphony, Hot House Magazine, Michigan State University, among others. Dease was profiled in Cicily Janus’ book, The New Face of Jazz: An Intimate Look at Today’s Living Legends (Random House). His experience in the studio has led him to produce several recording sessions for emerging artists, often composing and writing liner notes for the releases. Dease’s singular talent has made him an effective and prolific teacher, resulting in invitations, master classes and residencies at University of North Texas, Scranton University, University of Iowa, Florida State College, Broward College, and many institutions abroad. He serves as Professor of Jazz Trombone at the renowned Michigan State University jazz program and has also been on faculty at Queens College - CUNY, The New School and North-eastern University. Many of Dease’s current and former students are enjoying successful careers in the music world. Always an informed, but forward-thinking musician, Dease learned the craft from trombone legends Wycliffe Gordon and Joseph Alessi. His associations have run the entire spectrum of musical experience: Alicia Keys, Paul Simon, Paul Schaffer and the CBS Orchestra, Elton John, Neal Diamond, Illinois Jacquet, Slide Hampton & The World of Trombones, Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker, WDR Big Band, George Gruntz, Billy Harper, and numerous others. Dease enjoys spending every possible minute with his extraordinary wife and Professor of Percussion at MSU, Gwendolyn Dease, and their daughters Brooklyn & Charley. Michael Dease is a Yamaha Performing Artist and uses Pickett Brass and Vandoren mouthpieces exclusively.
