John Gunther & the “Bad Hombres” is a striking original project from some of Denver’s “baddest” musicians, brewing a progressive funk sound that draws influences from the likes of Chris Potter and Medeski Martin & Wood. Bad has never sounded so good.

John Gunther is a composer and multi-instrumentalist playing saxophones, clarinet, and flute. Possessing a restless musical spirit, he explores all forms of jazz from traditional to avant-garde in addition to classical music, world music, and experimental electronic music. He has performed on stages throughout the U.S., South America, and Europe, as well as in Carnegie Hall, in the middle of the ocean, and on the back of a truck. He has performed or recorded with jazz greats Ron Miles, Christian McBride, Bobby Watson, Larry Goldings, Tom Harrell, Dewey Redman, the Woody Herman Orchestra, and the Maria Schneider Orchestra, and has made guest solo appearances with the Sinfonietta Paris Chamber Orchestra, the Carpe Diem String Quartet, and the Banda Nacional de Cartago in Costa Rica. As part of New York City’s downtown music scene for many years, he produced five recordings for Creative Improvised Music Projects (CIMP). John’s most recent recording with his jazz group New West Quartet is on the Fresh Sound label.
