Check out BakerzMillion in their debut performance at Winter’s Jazz Club! They have a brand new album, just released on Chicago’s Delmark Records, the world’s longest running independent record label, about to celebrate their 70th (!!!!) year in biz, documenting important jazz and blues!!

“In the hands of pianist Steve Million and trombonist Andy Baker, the men who co-lead BakerzMillion… the classic sound of three horns plus rhythm comes newly alive, mindful of tradition but bristling with the assembled experience of the players involved.” – Neil Tesser

BakerzMillion is an all-star jazz sextet in the tradition of the classic Blue Note groups of the 1960s. Featuring Andy Baker (trombone, tunes), Steve Million (piano, tunes), Eric Jacobson (trumpet), Jim Gailloreto (saxophones), Tim Davis (drums) and John Tate (bass), the band was formed in 2005 to perform new, original compositions by co-leaders Andy Baker and Steve Million.

Since that time, the band has been playing all over Chicagoland in concert halls, universities and clubs such as the Jazz Showcase and the Green Mill. Their first recording, “Mood Point” was released in April 2012 to widespread critical acclaim.

“…first-class original tunes…wonderful sextet arrangements, everyone’s chops are waaay up, great ideas all around and clearly everyone is having a ball.” – Randy Brecker

Andy Baker & Steve Million – BakerzMillion Live in Racine
Delmark DE 5037 (June/July 2022)
Compact Disc
Very much in the vein of Art Blakey’s “Jazz Messengers” or Coltrane’s band on the legendary “Blue Train” album, BakerzMillion is Chicago’s hard bop ensemble par excellence.
Its six members are a true dream team of talented and seasoned jazzmen. The band’s longevity, over fifteen years already, contributes to the solid and balanced sound of the ensemble. Playing original tunes composed by the co-leaders the ensemble brings a breeze of fresh air to these mainstream sonorities.
Recorded February 2018 by Robert Vallone, Produced by Andy Baker, Mixed & Mastered by Fred Breitberg, Photo and notes by Michael Jackson.
