Award winning guitarist, Gene Ess, draws upon a diverse background to

form his unique style. Studying classical piano, Gene’s early years were filled

with sounds of Beethoven and Chopin. Originally from Tokyo, Japan and

growing up on a US Air Force Base on Okinawa, Gene was simultaneously

receiving a mix of influences: he was exposed to the indigenous music of

Okinawa and ­ to the pop and jazz music coming out of the clubs for the

American soldiers. All this amounted for an early obsession with music.

During the 90s he worked with the great drummer Rashied Ali (John

Coltrane), touring globally and recording a well received album “No One in

Particular”. Through this group, Gene met and played with Carlos Santana,

Ravi Coltrane, Matt Garrison, Lonnie Plaxico, Archie Shepp, and Reggie

Workman among many others.

Gene's new album “Eternal Monomyth” will be released April 27, 2015. This

set of new music continues Gene's exploration using voice as an instrument

in a chamber group setting. The album is a companion piece to the SESAC

Outstanding Jazz Award “Fractal Attraction” album which has received

international acclaim and also charted on the national jazz radio chart

peaking at #3! Gene will present his group “Fractal Attraction” at Drom, NYC

on April 26th, 2015 at 8:30pm in celebration of his new album release. The

band will feature Gene on guitar, Thana Alexa on voice, Thomson Kneeland

on bass, Clarence Penn on drums, and a very special guest on piano. Don’t

miss it!
