From the New York Observer:
It’s hard to pin down the drummer-composer John Hollenbeck stylistically. You can frequently find him playing gigs as a sideman at clubs like the Village Vanguard and the Jazz Standard. This would suggest rather strongly that Mr. Hollenbeck is a jazz musician.
But is he?
“Uh, I can play jazz,” Mr. Hollenbeck said cagily. “I know a lot about jazz.”
He then proceeded to give a definition of jazz that was so expansive that it bordered on meaninglessness.
