About

Theo Bleckmann, voice; Ben Monder guitar

“so virtuosic and inventive a pair…the two share a subtle discipline that results in a focused, cohesive whole” – Downbeat

“Bleckmann possesses technique so colossal, yet so meticulous, he can seem otherworldly, an android-like embodiment of sci-fi vocalisms, a bodily vessel for that voice.” – AllAboutJazz

Grammy-nominated jazz singer and new music composer Theo Bleckmann’s diverse recorded work includes albums of Las Vegas standards, Weimar art songs and popular “bar songs”; a recording of newly-arranged songs by Charles Ives with jazz/rock collective Kneebody; his acclaimed Hello Earth - the Music of Kate Bush and his new ECM recording with Elegy. Bleckmann has collaborated with musicians, artists, actors and composers, including Ambrose Akinmusire, Laurie Anderson, Uri Caine, Philip Glass, Ann Hamilton, John Zorn, the Bang on a Can All-Stars, and Meredith Monk. Bleckmann has consistently appeared in the top-five spots in the DownBeat Critics’ Polls for Best Male Vocalist and top-ten spots in their Readers’ Polls....

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
