Artist Profile

For Jeff Albert, gigs make the man

OffBeat profiles Jeff Albert.

In 1986, jazz critic Stanley Crouch wrote, “the vast majority of those who were considered avant-garde twenty years ago represented the first generation in the history of the art who were incapable of meeting the technical standards set by their predecessors.” Perhaps that was the case in New York, perhaps it was the case 20 or 40 years ago, or perhaps the quote represents Crouch’s myopia where the avant-garde is concerned. In New Orleans, some of the leading players in improvised music are often equally present in more traditional scenes.
