"Dave has always been one of the most amazing piano players I've ever heard." (Bonnie Raitt)
Keyboard man David Maxwell, who just received the 2009 Boston Music Award for best Blues Act of the year, also has an accomplished jazzy side. Maxwell’s current version of his “Outtakes Unlimited” jazz excursions includes Allan Chase, Jim Hobbs, John Lockwood and Bob Gullotti, all locally based and renowned nationally and internationally for their masterful jazz improvisational skills.
Needing no lengthy introductions: Lockwood and Gullotti (who make up two thirds of the Fringe, www.thefringejazz.com), Chase (currently teaching at Berklee), and Hobbs (best known for his Fully Celebrated Orchestra) are some of the best jazz improvisers around. Award-winning blues artist Maxwell (www.davidmaxwell.com) has also had one foot in the jazz and improvised music worlds for the past 15 years -- presenting an "Outtakes Unlimited’ whenever the jazz spirit moves him, which is more often than not.
Anything is bound to occur with this current "Outtakes Unlimited’ configuration – guaranteed to be a very energetic contemporary-with-some-antiquity evening, including a trio of “mijwiz” (double barreled reed flute) madness, performed by Maxwell, Chase, and Hobbs.
