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.
