Dennis González is an extraordinary musician and composer that has developed his activity since the early 70’s. Unlike many musicians who establish themselves in a place making it their musical habitat and connecting to the local jazz scene, his adventurous and free spirit made him welcome in many different cities, establishing musical bonds with diverse local musicians. He has worked with Alvin Fielder, Kidd Jordan, Marion Jordan, Tim Green, Elton Heron and Clyde Kerr Jr. in New Orleans, with Vinny Golia, Tina Marsh, Ken Filiano in Austin, in California with John Carter and the brothers Cline, Alex and Nels, and in Boston with Joe Morris and Nate McBride. He played and/or recorded in the last 24 years, all over the world, with musicians like Louis Moholo, Keith Tippett, Mark Sanders, John Stevens, Elton Dean, Nils Petter Molvaer, Paul Rogers, Malachi Favours, Cecil Taylor, Charles Brackeen, Frank Lowe, Andrew Cyrille, Roy Hargrove, Fred Hopkins, Oliver Lake, Peter Kowald, Max Roach, Sabir Mateen and Hamid Drake. He is a plastic artist, a writer and still has time to teach Tejano, Mariachi, Latino Music Studies, Spanish, French and Jazz Studies, for 30 years, in Texas public schools. He leads, since 5 years, the trio “Yells at Eels” with his sons Aaron and Stephan and collaborates or leads various formations with whom he records regularly.
