Multi-reedman John Dierker “has become a major improvisational stylist…interweaving concepts augmented by howling lines, injections of blues-drenched choruses and Albert Ayler-like display of energy.” (All About Jazz) A Baltimore, Maryland native, Dierker has worked in a wide variety of musical settings, collaborating with Peter Zummo, Jason Willett, Jad Fair, and The Basement Boys. John is a longtime member of Lafayette Gilchrist and The New Volcanoes. Currently he is working with Quartet Offensive, Microkingdom, and 3081, a group that includes Michael Formanek, Dave Ballou and Will Redman. (Photo: Stewart Mostofsky)
On Friday night, Dierker graced our ranks and helped Boister deliver up DW Griffith’s “Intolerance” to a standing ovation at the University of Maryland’s Hoff Theater.
And for the record, here he is with Boister’s Lyle Kissack in the 1990’s Baltimore dream team, The Pleasant Livers.

After, I don’t know, 14 years? of collaboration, our bass clarinetist, Denis Malloy, has decided to explore new terrain. Check him out on our 2nd record, Song of the Smoke, through our most recent studio album, Some Moths Drink the Tears of Elephants, featuring his beautiful original, “Thought Bubble.” You can also hear him on excerpts from our score for Intolerance, as well as our version of NPR’s theme for Morning Edition, both featured on our music player here. A toast to an excellent player.
