“Searing, no-nonsense jazz.” —JazzTimes
2019’s BDJF Artist-In-Residence Tia Fuller is a saxophonist, composer, and bandleader who uses the process of diamonds forming under four levels of extreme pressure and heat as a metaphor for the time she spent honing her craft. The proportioning and the balance necessary to reflect the most light correlates to her bright and crystal-clean delivery, on display on her latest record, Grammy-nominated Diamond Cut. Formerly a member of Beyonce’s touring band—performing as a featured soloist for the Obamas at the White House—Fuller is now a full-time Berklee professor, marrying her dedication to teaching with an intimately pure style that we’re lucky to have passed down to the jazz makers of tomorrow.
