“Schonig creates a language flexible and distinct enough to contain multitudes”– Jon Garelick, The Boston Phoenix

“Schonig provides a snappy, powerful backbone . . . it develops in surprising and spontaneous ways”
– Peter Margasak, The Chicago Reader

“Schonig’s throttling trap set palpitations provide the fuel . . . The machine gun drum fills . . . the spry bop rhythms . . . careen with finger snapping abandon” – Troy Collins, All About Jazz

In the music of drummer/composer Jared Schonig (drummer for the multiple 2021 TONY Award winning musical, Moulin Rouge), there is a life-force, a vibrant affirmation that there are numerous great reasons to get out of bed in the morning and embrace it all. His music percolates with sincere optimism for the future, enthusiasm for the present and reverence and erudition of the past. The music on Schonig’s intrepid debut recording(s) as a leader, Two Takes Vol. 1: Quintet & Vol. 2: Big Band (available now on Anzic Records) is meticulously-crafted, played with the freedom, abandon, joy and excellence that only top New York City players seem to truly capture simultaneously. With this debut as a leader we experience a musician who dreams big, makes those dreams come true, and thrives as a percussive force in many dimensions: primal and raw, shimmering and playful, pounding and exhilarating, tumultuous and brutal, complex, unpredictable and exhilarating. And, with these recordings, Schonig now joins the growing fellowship of drummers fronting their own bands, from Brian Blade to Johnathan Blake to Tyshawn Sorey, and many others.
