Hailed by the New York Times as "a tenor saxophonist with an enigmatic, elegant and hard-driving style," JD Allen is a bright rising light on today's international jazz scene. His unique and compelling voice on the instrument – the result of a patient and painstaking confrontation with the fundamentals of the art - has recently earned Allen a blaze of critical attention signaling his ascension to the upper ranks of the contemporary jazz world. Press accolades include Downbeat Critics Polls Rising Star finalist in the 2010, 2009 + 2008 (three years in a row!), I AM I AM and SHINE! TOP 10 ALBUM OF THE YEAR in over 25 publications worldwide including; NPR'S Top 5 Albums of 2009 (Shine!), JazzTimes Top 50 Albums of 2009 (Shine!), Village Voice #9 Jazz Album of the Year (Shine!), Boston Globe Top Jazz Album of the Year, 2009 (Shine!). Allen's next release on the Sunnyside label, VICTORY!, is slated for May 2011 and includes a 10-minute documentary short film by Director Mario Lathan.
