Welcome!  Jeremy is a Brooklyn-based, Plainville, Massachusetts-bred, "gifted saxophonist-composer with a gorgeous tone" (JAZZTIMES).  The band-leader and Lyricon enthusiast has released six critically-acclaimed albums for Sunnyside Records (NY) and Fresh Sound New Talent (Barcelona), and he has collaborated on many others.  Udden has performed with Bob Brookmeyer, Steve Lacy, Ben Monder, Frank Carlberg, Matt Wilson, John McNeil, Gunther Schuller, Lee Konitz, Either/Orchestra, Ehio-Jazz legend Mulatu Astatke among many others on stages around the US, Europe, Ethiopia and China.  PLAINVILLE and HUSH POINT are two of his main projects, though he continues to write and record new music, collaborate on new ensembles, and dream up bands and records every day.  


"With his beautiful, round soprano tone, the saxophonist Udden lends a haunting sheen to tunes spanning the soothingly melodic to the jaggedly free."
- MODERN DRUMMER

"The more difficult Udden’s music becomes to classify, the better it seems to get.”
- DOWNBEAT
