Tune in to Live Constructions tomorrow evening from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. to hear a live interview with New York City based drummer, songwriter, and vocalist Jeremy Carlstedt. The interview will feature Carlstedt on the making of his new album, Stars Are Far, his time playing with the late Chico Hamilton’s Euphoria group, his ongoing tour, and more along with select tracks from Stars Are Far.
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.
With more than a dozen releases to his credit, Jeremy's first solo recording, When I Wake Up, an art-rock EP featuring his drumming, vocals and compositions, was released in October 2012 on 1k Recordings. Stars Are Far, which he describes as an avant jazz/experimental recording with a bit of rock thrown in, is his first LP and features Carlstedt on drums, Brian Settles on saxophone, Tim Motzer on guitar, and Eric Wheeler on bass.
