Tune in to Live Constructions this Sunday evening at 10:00 PM to hear a live set by drummer Jeremy Carlstedt and saxophonist Brian Lee Settles. Following the forty-minute set, the duo will talk about their twenty-five-year history of playing together and the teachers who have inspired them throughout their lives as musicians.
Jeremy Carlstedt, known for his dynamic style, organic feel on the drums, and musical intuition, has performed with some of the most forward thinking artists in jazz, rock, electronic, and world music. As a protege of the legendary Chico Hamilton, Jeremy has absorbed music history in the best possible classroom: on the bandstand as a member of Hamilton's group Euphoria as well as Vincent Chancey's Phat Chance, Brian Settles and Central Union, and a new duet with Tim Motzer, which have put him on some of the world's most prestigious stages, including The Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Newport Jazz Festival, Syracuse Jazz Festival and Roulette.
Brian Settles is a highly sought after saxophonist and composer from Washington, DC. Equally in demand as a sideman and a leader, Brian has dedicated his life to the study and practice of music - first at the prestigious Duke Ellington School of the Arts, The New School University, and most recently at Howard University. Settles has performed and recorded with groups led by Gil Scott - Heron, Reggie Workman, Jason Moran, Tomas Fujiwara, Tom Abbs - and has played alongside such jazz greats as Stanley Turrentine, Shirley Horn and Milt Hinton.
