Biography

Having made a name for himself through his associations with singer Jane Monheit and boyhood friend, pianist Brad Mehldau, Frahm hones his own voice on this - his fourth recording as a leader. He has worked with a vast array of musical peers and jazz luminaries including Maynard Ferguson, Betty Carter, Matt Wilson, Larry Goldings, Dewey Redman, Lee Konitz, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Andrew Hill, Ben Allison, Pat Martino, Ingrid Jensen, Dena DeRose, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Kyle Eastwood among many others.

Born in Racine, WI in 1969, Frahm attended the Mason Gross School for the Arts and earned his B.A. in Jazz Performance at Manhattan School of Music. He released three highly regarded CDs on Palmetto Records: The Navigator, Don’t Explain (with Mehldau), and Sorry No Decaf before leaving the label and releasing 2007’s We Used to Dance on Anzic Records with Kenny Barron, Rufus Reid and Victor Lewis. Joel was also recently selected in DownBeat Magazine’s Critics Poll as a Rising Star in the category of tenor saxophone.
