Steve Day is a writer, poet and percussionist and among the very few independent British jazz writers to be quoted in the definitive ‘Penguin Guide to Jazz’ (Cook/Morton). “Writer Steve Day spins out a complicated conceit in his liner-notes, aligning this group (Anthony Braxton’s Ninetet) with the ‘Birth of the Cool’ band and Braxton’s new music with Miles Davis’s innovations of the 50’s. Temperamentally, it’s probably difficult to imagine two musicians further apart, but it’s clear that Miles has become an important resource and quiddity for Braxton in the later 90’s and Day’s analysis, lateral as it is, ends up absolutely on the money.”


He contributes monthly reviews and other material to the online What’s New magazine hosted by www.sandybrownjazz.co.uk   Steve Day is also currently working on a book about the Russian musicians, the Ganelin Trio. As a member of the collaborative ensemble, Blazing Flame, he is responsible for all their songs which are performed within the context of improvisation.  Five films made in 2015 are now available of the band.  A new album for 2016 will be available later in the year.
